You know your scales, understand how to play over a chord progression, and learned enough music theory to fill an encyclopedia, but you still aren't satisfied with your solos. This book teaches jazz guitarists how to apply their knowledge of scales, chord progressions, and music theory towards creating great guitar solos. Eight full-length solos in a variety of styles are studied in detail, including analysis of chord progressions and the material used to improvise over them, techniques, and structural characteristics. Styles range from classic standards and Gypsy jazz to Latin, modal and smooth jazz. All eight solos are performed on the accompanying CD.

What we have here is eight tunes, written out in standard notation and tab, each followed by a complete analysis- the scales used (nicely diagrammed) and a discussion of why each is appropriate. Each tune illustrates a specific style- there's a minor blues, a major blues, a Django-esque tune, a modal tune, and a number of familiar sounding tunes with progressions and melodies that echo tunes like Green Dolphin Street, Blue Bossa, and other standards. Anyone who's comfortable with rhythm guitar, knows his or her basic movable chord forms and can play basic blues or rock has all the skills they need to work on this book. This is a very useful supplement for the rocker interested in learning the jazz idiom.
