They used to think it was the Devil's scale, and they might have been right! What other sound could inject such decadent delight into an otherwise wholesome, but uninspiring, improvisation? Learn how to use this compelling sound in the traditional fashion and in ways that Boppers never dreamed of!

This long awaited 104 page book is THE defining treatise on the diminished scale. It explains everything you need to know about this versatile scale and how/where to use it in your solos. Includes 12 exercises, 6 common patterns, and 4 classic diminished licks over ii/V7/I tracks aligned to Jamey's popular Vol. 3 play-a-long (sold separately). Also included are 12 etudes, many based on standards, that demonstrate how and where to place diminished scale ideas in the changes.
