Miles Davis for Solo Guitar
Sep 02 2016
15 jazz classics arranged for chord-melody guitar. This is a very nice collection of advanced solo pieces for jazz guitar. The selection is very solid, and the arrangements are really top notch. Jamie clearly put a lot of effort into this project and the outcome is apparent. There is virtually no pedagogy here – just the raw arrangements and a well recorded CD of jamie playing each tune at a performance level at normal speed. The CD alone is worth the cost of the package just as a listening CD. But be warned: although the arrangements are clean and sensibly voiced, the pieces are complex and will take considerable effort to master – but they are well worth it.
The arrangements in this book are not easy but are quite rewarding once you master them. For those guitarists looking to take an already good arrangement in their own unique direction, you won’t be disappointed here. Most arrangements in this book include simple solo sections that lay down a nice foundation, but also invite you to take them in any direction you want. The accompanying CD with Jamie Findlay’s performances makes this product something special.
Just listen to the CD alone and you will want to make this an addition to your set. He mostly plays a nylon string guitar and regular acoustic guitar on most of the tracks, along with an older-sounding archtop on at least one tune. The sound quality coming from his nylon and acoustic guitars is great.
If you want challenging, modern chord-melody arrangements of tunes that Miles made popular, get this book.
