Learn to Solo for Jazz Guitar with Fastlines, the Combined Book and Audio Tutor
Author: Brockie Ged
The Fastlines Jazz Guitar Method Advanced in the third book in a set of nine created by the Guitar & Music Institute. This book, written by guitarist Ged Brockie continues from the Jazz Primer and Jazz Intermediate volumes. This Advanced book includes twenty two jazz lines which includes examples of flat five substitution, lines in fourths, triadic substitution, contemporary and modern rhythm changes, scales built from the lydian mode, diminished lines and wide interval playing. There is a complete solo included as well as five backing tracks in various styles including rhythm changes in G, altered chord progressions and lydian backing tracks. There is also a project section to help you get more from the material presented in this book which includes quartal harmony, movement of a half step, exploiting the flattened fifth and combining major arpeggios.
A modern arpeggio handbook and comprehensive training manual for developing fast, flowing arpeggio runs that connect the entire fretboard. Emphasis is on developing fluid, non-shifting arpeggio patterns (across the neck) using hammer-ons and pull-offs for speed and fluidity; and also on developing smooth position-shifting arpeggios (along the length of the neck) using slides. These two types of motion are then connected and combined in an extensive collection of soloing etudes for full assimilation. The result is a complete system of arpeggio pathways that connects every part of the fretboard and facilitates maximum speed, fluidity, and range. Complete whole-neck connections are presented for major 7th, dominant 7th, minor 7th, minor 6th, half-diminished, diminished 7th, major triadic and minor triadic arpeggios. This book is for all guitarists who are serious about improving their ability to solo over chord progressions using arpeggios, in any style of music; including rock, jazz, fusion, blues, country or pop. Having the ability to instantly outline any chord in a song with a fluid arpeggio run (no matter where your hand is on the neck) is immensely valuable for every guitarist. This book methodically teaches you the skills that make this possible. Loaded with melodic arpeggio passages that can be applied to your music immediately, this is perhaps the most practical and powerful arpeggio book ever written. CD included. Standard notation and Tablature.
The most complete method for the modern jazz guitarist. This book explores advanced, modern jazz, and bebop concepts and techniques, including music theory, scales, modes, chord voicings, arpeggios, soloing, and comping concepts. More than 170 music examples and 13 complete solos in the styles of many jazz greats are used to place all concepts into a practical musical context. A CD with all the music examples is included! The book comes with a metal spiral binding for ease of use and to ensure many years of durability.
Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred genres is an excellent tool to for the intermediate to advanced guitarist wanting to take their technique and knowledge to new, previously unobtainable levels. Throughout the book numerous examples are given that relate theory and technique to the lesson that is being taught. After reading this book you will be able to solo over any background in any style that you choose and always play in tune. Although this book is written with the metal and shred player in the forefront, it is equally effective as a learning resource for any style of playing. The book is divided into three main sections that epitomize the essence of metal and shred guitar; Theory, Arpeggios and Speed Picking. The Theory section employs pattern based methods for teaching modal theory and uses multiple angles and approaches to help you understand and visualize the fretboard. The Arpeggio section goes over all of the main arpeggios that guitarists rely upon and after giving a theory lesson on how to build and apply arpeggios into your own playing goes on to display examples of sweep picking licks that range from merely advanced to virtuoso style sweep, slide and tap techniques. The Speed Picking section displays outstanding examples and exercises to help you get your picking technique up to speed. Problem areas are isolated and addressed, helping you learn how to effectively practice and greatly improve upon your picking technique. This book contains a wealth of knowledge that any guitarist will find invaluable.
Whether you're a beginner or you want to find a new musical voice for your jazz soloing, these books will guide you simply through a potential minefield of jazz theory and melodic language. With clear, unacademic explanations and over 500 musical examples, you will find your playing developing faster than you could ever imagine.
