Quality


He goes from there into soloing over it with great exercises that get your fingers familiar with the arpeggios that go with each chord.


I have no doubt that, in time, my playing will really grow much better than with the online lessons i was using.


I would not be as happy with the practical jazz guitar if i did not have fundamental changes as well.


Well i'm not quite finished with the book.

Price


All of alexander's stuff is as advertised - it is some of the best text instruction available and is also well worth the price.

Shipping


Perhaps not as fast, but it has a distinct jazz sound.

Competitiveness


In this age youtube and home instructions books can take you a longgg way!

This book has been helping me create melodic solos in the major 2 5 1 progression as I go through the real book with my teacher.

    I study concurrently with a teacher who gives me the theoretical context and methods of systematic learning, so my progress is relatively quick, but the book is no less suitable for self-study.

    Then it won't be rote memorization; it will be your own musical approach.

    The book arrivd without a cd, but the backtracks were downloadable from the publishers website.

    If you are one of those guitar players who has badly wanted to play jazz but found the process mystifying (and the books just as mystifying), get this book - get it yesterday.

    All the concepts are presented in one key (this is so huge imo) in one basic region on the fretboard (technically positions 4 - 8); transposing them to other keys and positions can be done either while working through the book (this is not what the book has you do, but i did this for f, b flat, c, and g) or after the entire book is completed.

    I would suggest a student to sing aloud, or in his or her mind, to every phrase put forth on guitar.

    He may mention as much in his notes in the book but it covers arpeggios, playing them in context (over corresponding chords), bebop, tritone substitutions, extensions built off said stuff and more, but, if you are familiar with caged system, does so only for ii v i progressions of the a major form.

    I guess the intention is to leave the application of this material to the remaining forms (cged) as an exercise for the reader.
