Bon livre complet pour travailler les différents aspects du jazz, en revanche je regrette l'absence de cd audio reprenant les exemple du livre

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deceptively Simple 11 janvier 2012
Par Michael J. Edelman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Almost every pro guitarist, and a lot of amateur ones, know the Mickey Baker books. A number of jazzers and rockers started out with them- Pete Townsend has said that he learned his chords from Mickey. This was the only specifically jazz oriented guitar method available back in the 50s when Mickey wrote it, and it's been in print pretty much continuously since then. That by itself should should tell you a lot. A lot of guitarists looking for a good jazz self-study course have looked at this book, and wondered if there was really much to be learned from few simple chord exercises and a few dozen riffs. Sure, there were a lot of good chords to be learned from it, but beyond that...?

Actually, there is a tremendous amount of information to be found in this book, but only if you follow Mickey's directions. He doesn't give you a lot of why- just "do this until you have it down." But if you do that, you'll find yourself internalizing a lot of important rules and skills that other teachers spell out. Those hokey sounding chord progressions that Mickey wants you to memorize and transpose to other keys are actually teaching you all the standard jazz substitutions. Mickey does spell out some of these rules in the second half of the book, but if you've done your homework you'll find that it's much easier to apply these rules to soloing if you've actually internalized them than if he had just told you that you could use a Lydian or Aeolian sub for a dominant chord in a 12 bar blues.

The second half of this book is all about learning to solo, and a lot of non-readers have looked at it, and been put off by the lack of tab. But you don't need reading skills beyond that absolute minimum to use this book. Mickey has provided all the fingerings below the staff for each exercise. It may be a little unfamiliar at first, but by the time you finish this book- and it'll take a year to really do it right- you'll find that you have some pretty good reading skills, too.

Even though it was written back in the 1950s, the riffs and chords Mickey teaches sound just as hip today. Some guitarists will quibble with some of Mickey's choices, or his chord names, but it's more a matter of opinion than a fault in the book. For example, a lot of contemporary guitarists would play something like Bm7-Bb7-Am7... rather than Mickey's straight descending m7ths (Bm7-Bbm7-Am7..) today, but that's something the student will learn just by listening to guitarists today.

In short, if you have some basic guitar skills- you know a few dozen chords, and you can strum along- and you're confused by all the different jazz guitar books out there- this is the one you should start with. If you follow his directions, practice every exercise until you've memorized it, and written out and practiced all the transpositions, too, by the time you finish the book you'll be able to comp and put together a simple solo over most any jazz tune.

[n.b.- this edition is the original book as printed in the 1950s. There's another edition with a blue cover that was edited and re-typeset in the 70s, but that edition contained a number of errors that were introduced in the editing. This is the one you want.]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners, but great for novice guitarists looking to stufy jazz techniques. 3 mai 2016

I'm returning to jazz guitar study after nearly 20 years away. When I was learning, in a college focused on jazz, this was standard fare. I learned on this book. The first part of the book is focused on chord study. There are tons of great jazz chords and basic, simple, progressions to learn and apply those chords. The reader is learning how to substitute jazz chords in a very simple and repetitive way. The second part of the book is focused on scales, various runs and riffs and soloing.

There is no tablature, and I think that is best. It is in every guitarists best interest to learn how to read music. it's very easy and will only help the studying guitarist advance in the long run.

This is not an appropriate book for a complete beginner. As a guitarist who had been playing for over 10 years, but with no jazz experience, this book was challenging. 20 years later, with a rusty music degree, it's keeping me on my toes. Not impossible, and a great motivator. I'm feeling great about reinforcing my core knowledge and technique as well as refreshing forgotten ones.

If you complete this and the 2nd Baker book, you're well on your way to being able to hold your own in a jazz setting, provided you're also listening to jazz and playing along to records and with other musicians.

I feel this would be a great folllow-up to the Berklee Modern Method for Guitar books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent jazz chord primer for guitar... 16 novembre 2010
Par Gitfiddler - Publié sur

I purchased this volume (and volume 2) 6 months ago or so and have been steadily working through the lessons. As for my skill, I'm an intermediate player with a solid chord vocabulary and a fair understanding of jazz harmony. Like most jazz guitar players, I want to know more. Aside from the low cost ($7.95), what most inspired me to consider these books was the "subtle" endorsement given them by Robben Ford in his "Art of Blues Solos" instructional video (which I enjoyed too). Ford stated that he worked through Mickey Baker's book when he first started playing guitar and... well, Ford is an awesome player!

Lesson 1 starts with Baker diagramming 26 chord forms and telling the reading to get familiar with them. The book does not use tab for showing chords, but the chord diagrams Baker provides are straight-forward. I suspect beginning players should want to break the chord forms down, by note, to learn which dotted fret is the root, 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc., for any given chord. The lessons that follow ask the reader to play melodies using specific groups of the 26 chords. Also, for some lessons, Baker asks the reader to transpose progressions from previous lessons into new keys and then practice playing them. As the lessons progress, Baker methodically introduces the reader to more chord forms, to single-note lines, chord vamps, progressions, and more... and more... and more. As other reviewers have pointed out, there are 52 lessons in volume 1, and so there is lots to learn.

The Baker books are simply designed for the reader to work at a comfortable yet steady pace, not become overwhelmed by discussions of theory, and to lean to play some cool sounding jazz melodies on the guitar. Beginning guitarists will likely have more difficulty but that would be due to a lack of mechanics than with anything else. With sufficient finger and chord exercises, playing troubles will diminish.

This book deserves 5 stars, the author does a great job starting you with the basics such as harmony (including chord exercises to improve technique) and then moving along teaching you must know information for a gigging jazz guitarist like builiding intros, scale runs, jazz blues and rhythm changes standard chord progressions as well as more advanced chord progressions for blues and rhythm changes. I have both books by Joe pass Guitar Styles and Book 1 by mickey baker and both are extremely loaded with information that cannot be easily absorbed in months maybe years. One thing that i really appreciate about Baker is that he gives you the information in a no non-sense kind of way and is strict on how you advance through the material, he advises the reader not to move on until you have completely absorbed transposition, chord changes, etc. this is great because in professional situations you need to have this knowledge second hand and ready to use in an instant. This book can be easily discouraging because you have to know how to use it, how to apply it, and how to teach it to yourself. Thankfully i am a Jazz Studies B.M and these harmonic concepts aren't so difficult to grasp because i have had music theory shoved down my throat (not forcefully but willingly). So if you decide to purchase this book have no concern it has a wealth of material and covers just about all that is essential for every jazz guitarist and if your music theory is rusty or basic definitely get a supplement to this book it will help you overall. Nobody said learning jazz guitar and Jazz in general was going to be really easy!!!

On a side note i would have preferred if the author covered more on improvisation but i think he did the right thing by starting the reader on Harmony and chord exercises first because guitarists are expected to know rhythm and harmony just as well as piano players which is why i think a thorough understanding of harmony will make modes and improvisation a lot easier. Practice this stuff slow and dont get frustrated.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Jazz Guitar Course 5 mai 2015
Par Admiral Schmickover - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'm a huge jazz fan and wanted to learn how to play guitar, but couldn't find the right method book for self-teaching. Most books out there assume you already know how to play and are proficient at guitar.

Enter Mickey Baker. There is no presupposing your guitar abilities. There are chords. You learn the chords. There are scales. You learn the scales. Theory comes naturally from experimenting with the various lessons. I've actually been able to play a few tunes from fakebooks after using this for a few weeks and have even braved chord substitutions.

The book is easy to read, simple to understand, and has a logical flow. My only complaint is that there aren't recordings of the lessons so you can hear them before you play them, but I've been able to find some stuff on youtube when I get stuck. I am all in on this one.
