Jerry Bergonzi - Pentatonics Volume 2
Jerry Bergonzi Pentatonics PDF and Mp3. This is a method book designed for all instruments. Chord changes are included for C Concert, Bb and Eb instruments. The accompanying recording has been designed for use in conjunction with the text. There are 18 tunes for you to play along with, featuring Renato Chicco on piano, Dave Santoro on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums, plus eight demonstration tracks performed by the author on tenor saxophone.
This is not a book of licks... if you're looking for that, this book is not for you. But if you want concepts and exercises that will help you develop your own melodies and motifs then you will not be disappointed. On a side note to guitarists... You really need to make sure you have your 5 basic minor pentatonic positions down cold in all keys. This book is written for any melodic instrument and you will have to do some serious jumping around to play some of the exercises if you don't.
Jerry has the best books. They are not for the faint of heart, and you have to actually think this stuff through. This book is very clear and specific.
Format: PDF + Audio tracks (Mp3).
