Improvised lines, in the Jazz style (from the bebop period to the present) are essentially formed by using a combination of scales, arpeggios, patterns, and embellishments. Various configurations should be practiced in all keys and at different tempos.

The embellishment is basically an ornament which is used to give color to the melodic line. This workbook shows you how to embellish chord tones. Several motifs and phrases are also given to illustrate the construction of jazz melodic lines.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to making melodic lines. This workbook is designed to be analyzed and practiced in all keys.
