Overview


The most complete method for any guitarist seeking a better understanding of the blues roots of jazz guitar. Based on the styles of the classic organ-trio guitarists of the '60s, such as Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and George Benson, this book explores all the concepts and techniques required to play in this foundational style. The book includes riffs and patterns, music theory, scales, modes, chord voicings, arpeggios, and soloing. Over 120 music examples and six complete solos in the styles of many jazz greats are used to place all concepts into a practical musical context. A CD with music examples is included!
