So you want to play jazz and improvise like a real pro? This book will show you how, fast! First learn a few basics: the all-important scales, fingering and chord sequences, starting with a simple bossa nova solo. Then move on to arpeggios and more complex patterns such as the bebop scale. Experiment with melodic shapes and discover the jazz-based blues progression used at most standard jazz gigs. The music examples then demonstrate rhythmic and free-flowing ideas with lots of tips on the advanced techniques used by professional jazzers. In no time at all you will be creating your own solos in the style of such great jazz legends as Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian, Sonny Rollins and Jim Hall. Five complete solos are included in the book in easy-to-follow tab.
