    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the chord.

    This book sets it all straight. Anyone caught in the myre of confusing jazz fusion needs this book. Few other books blend chords, voicings, intervals, and scales with a cd into such a useful text. Mr. Miller truly sets himself apart as a master of the guitar. I could have spent years acquiring all of the information that is contained in this one book. Great job, keep up the good work.

    Best instructional guitar book I have ever purchased

    This book taught me more about scales, modes, and chords in two hours of reading than I had ever learned during my 20 years of playing classical piano. It is an extensive source of essential practice material for any guitarist regardless of the style of music being studied. They say that music is a language. With spoken language like English, eloquence comes with a price - mastering grammar and vocabulary is the foundation for freeing up your mind to focus on the message you want to deliver and how to deliver it. It is naive to assume that musical eloquence can be achieved without paying the corresponding price of learning music¿s grammar and vocabulary. Getting Into Jazz Fusion will take you through scales, modes, chords and the relationships between them in a methodical and easy-to-follow manner. I have found that this book has the excellent quality of simultaneously being an excellent textbook on the subject and a very-easy-to-use lesson/practice guide.

    A Marvelous Work

    Mr. Miller has done an exceptional job giving chords and the modal charts to solo over those chords. This book is a gem. Hats off to Mr. Miller for spending the time and effort to make the melodic and harmonic minor understandable. Truely a great book.

    A must have for guitarists!

    This book is phenomenal! Out of all the books I've purchased over the years on scales and modes, this is surely the best. This book will instantly give any guitarist (from beginner to advanced) an understanding of jazz scales, modes, chords and chord progressions. I can't say enough good things about this book; it has truly (finally) opened my eyes and ears to those sounds I've been hearing for years by the greats on jazz and jazz fusion CD's. A remarkable piece of work!
