Mark Harrison - Country Piano
Mark Harrison Country Piano PDF. Ever wanted to play country piano, but weren't sure where to start? Country Piano will teach you the basic skills you need! From comping to soloing, you'll learn the theory, tools and tricks used by the pros to get that authentic country sound. At the end of the book, you'll get seven complete tunes to jam on. Listen to the CD, and start playing along!
This book includes important information about scales and chords, patterns walking up and down, comping, traditional and modern country, arpeggio styles, "fretted piano" techniques, fills, and licks...anything that is used in any type of country. It goes through traditional country waltz, western swing, bluegrass, honky-tonk, Nashville country waltz, classic country rock, country rock ballad, country pop "easy listening", country gospel, country blues, and more. The book moves quickly but provides the information that is important for those of us looking to play. It comes with a very handy CD which allows to hear what it's supposed to sound like.
If you are a beginner, you'll need another source for learning chords, progressions, and scales. This book covers those things, but not in a beginner-friendly way. It's pretty dry; however, that does not detract from its usefulness.
