HASH(0x9622bf60) étoiles sur 5 A Useful Extension of Gambale Technique Books 26 août 2006
Par Al - Publié sur
As the book cover states, this improvisation course is for intermediate to advanced players. Beginners are advised to at least gain a solid understanding of improvisation theory (e.g. from Gambale Technique Book I & II) and develop a fluent alternate/sweep picking technique, which are very much necessary for fully learning the licks, before tackling 'Improvisation Made Easier'.

(1) Gambale's music is largely modal as opposed to bebop/tonal/chord-tone approach, 'Improvisation Made Easier' is essentially an improvisation study of 12 important modes in terms of his licks.

(2) There is no analysis for the licks. But it will be beneficial for the guitarist, who is presumably equipped with a solid knowledge of improvisation theory, to figure out the ideas in the phrases, e.g. triad superimpositions, pentatonic usage, etc.

(3) With some musical sense, improvisational ideas, e.g. melodic sequence, intervallic movement, etc. can be extracted from the licks, which serve as inspirations for soloing ideas, rather than just plain licks to play over. Such ideas should then be developed into one's own phrases, so as to expand the usefulness of the licks.

(4) Licks are presented in 3 different speeds, it seems 2 is really enough so as to reserve space for the play-along tracks which the CDs lack.

Par B. Braun - Publié sur
I bought this book about two years too soon. After buying the book I went through the first mode in the book (mixolydian) and then put the book away until recently. I can tell you that for you to take the most from this book you should be able to recognize the major and minor triads all over the neck. This is important because when you are learning each of the phrases that Gambale presents for each mode you should be able to say to yourself, "Hey, this E mixolydian phrase is composed of Dmaj and Amaj triads" for example. Having said that, the book lends itself very well to revisiting as you develop. If you can recognize the triads this book is great for learning the critical skill of how to move from scales to triads while soloing, and learning which triad substitutions should be used for each mode. The book does come with a CD that has each soloing phrase played at three different tempos but unfortunately there are no backing tracks. And although the book does have some modal songs to listen to and learn, again, there are no backing tracks.

HASH(0x9622a1d4) étoiles sur 5 Well laid out... but.. easier...! 13 avril 2011
Par Philanthropic Pundit - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
I have several Frank Gambale books... and as always, they are well written and cover the material thoroughly enough.

As I mentioned in the title, but... easier! (well this is the reason for the four star rather than five star rating).

The first topic dives headlong into the modes, E mixolydian to be precise and chugs along from there. All well and good if you have some theory under your belt but if not, you will find the going a little tough. Even for well seasoned players, unless your are relatively conversant with theory, you might get lost and lose interest in this book. Which is a shame as it really does provide a good knowledge of scales and modes to enable some cool improvisation. The examples given by Frank Gambale are tasteful with the exception that most of the licks and improvisational lines are predominately sixteenth notes... A slightly wider musical palate might have been useful if you are not contemplating being a shredder... Say for example a blues inspired feel and or a jazzier version rather then tight note shred like approach.

In any case, a great book that led me to another avenue of guitar playing (improvisation) that I have avoided for years... (due primarily because of lack of knowledge). I found that once I revised and looked up some of the theory to help me simplify things, Franks lesson's became much more usable... and enjoyable.

HASH(0x9622c564) étoiles sur 5 Not one of the classics in the genre, but worth checking out. 11 février 2006
Par David A. Kaplowitz - Publié sur
What this book offers is scale fingerings, essential chord voicings, and licks for each of the 7 modes of the major scale, the 7 modes of the melodic minor scale and a couple other useful scales (from harmonic minor and dimished half-whole). In Gambale's style there's also a small, cheesy song that highlights each of the modes. At the end, there's a longer song (that highlights everything covered in the book) called "Modal Lawn". Classic Gambale pad pun horror show. ;)

The scale patterns are mostly 3-note per string patterns, which are useful if you use his speed picking method of picking scales. The licks are played 3 ways on the 2 accompanying CDs, slow, medium and fast. Every example gives picking direction indicators to show you how he recommends picking them (again, good for speed pickers). They're not drop dead great licks, but there are some nice ones, and they're certainly enough to fuel many great ideas. The chord voicings are good accompanying material since you are free to play with and expand upon a good base of chords to get you started. The songs are just basically extended licks.

This isn't the best book going because it teaches a more scale oriented approach (rather than a chord tone oriented approach) to improv. And I think that too many guitarists forget there's such a thing as chord tones (nor do most know where they all are on the fingerboard cold), but if you need to or want to learn your most important scales, this is a good start. It's also pretty essential reading if you're into Frank's speed picking technique or are a fan of Frank's style. I personally think that for the ~$16. or so dollars it's selling for, it's a pretty good value compared to other books that claim to cover similar material.
HASH(0x96e42558) étoiles sur 5 Good For Sweep Fingerings But He Doesn't Play These Licks Much 11 septembre 2015
Par R. Letson - Publié sur
This book is a whole bunch of licks made from different modes / scales.

I think it can be very useful for some.

There are some caveats and they are not insignificant:

#1 Though the title is "Improvisation Made Easier", there are absolutely no lessons on improvisation. Maybe the idea is that once you're armed with this compendium of licks, you'll be able to improvise better / easier.....dunno.

#2 These licks are all comprised of notes that are in whatever scale / mode is being discussed. There are no chromatic passing tones. The problem I see with that is that it's likely that the people who buy this book are into Frank Gambale's playing, and would like some info as to how he plays. He typically plays single note lines that have a be-boppish leaning, even the modes. So what I'm saying is that FG doesn't really play like this. These licks are like FG licks that have had all the chromaticism removed.

The plus here is that you DO get a glimpse of how FG fingers scales / modes, which is probably the best part of the book. He sets up notes in such a way as to maximize the effectiveness of his "sweep picking" technique - which can be very cool.
