All Blues Soloing for Jazz Guitar PDF: Scales, Licks, Concepts & Choruses. The most complete guide to jazz/blues soloing ever written! This comprehensive book details the sounds, elements, and approaches that make the blues such an integral part of the jazz vocabulary. Moving from blues progressions to fingerboard organization to phrasing, essential blues scales, riffs, lick development, and an array of advanced concepts and devices, including substitute scales & extended super arpeggios are covered. Throughout this process 38 solos, over 100 music examples, and hundreds of licks are featured. Written in notation and tablature.
"All Blues Soloing..." takes you step by step in an easy to understand, logical progression. The writing is clear and not abstruse. Each solo is an excellent example which makes the point of the written section but is also a beautiful, short musical piece which doesn't sound forced and is fun to play (which you can do along with the accompanying CD, very helpful for those who get the rhythms better by listening).
