Fred Sokolow – Swing Guitar

Learn to play swing rhythm and lead guitar in the style of the masters! With this book/CD pack you get: transcriptions of 15 original hit recordings from the classics of the 1930s and ’40s to the revival of the ’90s; performance notes to help you understand the solos; instruction in comping patterns and chord embellishment; a history of swing guitar; and more. The accompanying CD includes full-band demos of all the songs, with guitar parts isolated.
Sokolow gives guitarists a lot to work with in this book, ranging from old school swing and jazz to newfangled 1990s swing-knockoff stuff. The tab is accurate, and the CD allows the listener to fade out the background music to focus solely on the guitar parts, which is big time useful. Plus, the solos and chord work in this book are tasty and worth learning, if only to sprinkle into your own guitar style. Definitely worth the cover price if your interested in swing guitar. Another great book to check out is Swing Guitar Essentials by the boys from Acoustic Guitar magazine. These two books rank among the ten best guitar books currently available for intermediate/advanced guitarists who want to get beyond boring old pentatonic/diatonic scale patterns.

  • Go Daddy-O – Big Bad VooDoo Daddy
