In this book you will find 120 2-bar ii-V riffs--ten different riffs for each of the 12 keys. Learning these riffs in all possible positions and using as many different fingerings as possible will help students learn the fingerboard and find the best fingerings and positions for them.

A handy yet complete guide to 7-string jazz guitar chords. Shows rhythm chords with root, 3rd and 5th in the bass along with great sounding chord extensions ideal for rhythm or solo performance.

Rolly Brown leads you through a series of lessons designed particularly to help guitarists hear, understand, and learn guitar music. The emphasis here is on hearing and identifying sound, with only the bare minimum of music theory information required to help you organize sound into understandable patterns. Included are quizzes and exercises about some very basic scales and melodies, then on to some chords and chord progressions. These give you ample opportunity to test your listening skills on the included material, while also suggesting a protocol for creating any number of your own quizzes at any level from beginner to advanced.

A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen.

Running time: 103 minutes. Tab/Music material is on the DVD as PDF files.

Choosing four of his favorite jazz standards, Rolly Brown presents an inside view into his construction of a fingerstyle guitar version of each tune. With a concentration on sophisticated but easily fingered chord positions, this lesson offers an excellent introduction into the world of jazz for folk, pop, or blues guitarists who are ready to expand their panorama of musical colors. The tunes move from the more familiar keys, C and G, into approachable 'starter' keys for jazz: F and Bb, and move from the more predictable (The Way You Look Tonight) to the more structurally challenging (Stella By Starlight). Tab PDFs help the student learn specific arrangements for each tune while the video lessons give ample ideas for expanding and improvising on the tunes. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen.

Titles include: The Way You Look Tonight, Darn That Dream, It Could Happen To You and Stella by Starlight

Running time: 96 minutes. Tab/Music material is on the DVD as PDF files.

Destined to become a classic, this book is the natural result of not only years of playing jazz guitar but also of the author's long associations with many innovative jazz guitarists. This comprehensive guide is one of the first jazz methods to focus entirely on the blues idiom and its contribution to jazz improvisation. It is designed to help you play authoritatively in a broad spectrum of jazz guitar settings from big band to small combos to a solo context. This book is divided into 4 sections which addresses 12-bar blues progressions, 3-note Freddie Green-type chords, shuffles, swing riff comping, chord scales, linear bebop comping, modal concepts, triads over bass notes and a wealth of chord voicings and inversions. Includes over 110 music examples, 45 complete 12-bar choruses, and a CD with 30 tracks. It also offers a helpful glossary of jazz terminology. Written in standard notation and tablature.

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.

The fifth book from Jim Ferguson, All Intros & Endings features dozens of hip intros and endings that you can use not only for gigs, but also as a staring point for developing your own ideas. There are chord progressions, voice-led ending chords, vamps (bebop, swing, Latin, and ballads), extended ideas, classic intros, and many concepts which are designed to provide the player with the material to fuel his or her own creativity.

Do you want to develop greater fingerboard familiarity and improvisational fluency, and learn a lot of licks at the same time? Then, regardless of your level, this book is for you. The goal of this book is to demonstrate how fingerings can be applied in a realistic jazz setting, and to help players get a better handle on negotiating the guitar's fingerboard and improvisation in general, while learning a hip solo over a cool background. This book has a number of dynamic features, including... - A methodical, position by position look at improvisation. - A focus on phrasing. - Cool, repetitious grooves that give the player a chance to develop skills without the added complication of having to change to a new scale or key center. - Swinging solos that cover the range of a given fingering or position. - Formulas for the major modes and a variety of other scales. Each solo contains a number of hip phrases, licks, and patterns that take advantage of the related scale position and fingering. In addition to developing fingerboard familiarity and improvisational skills, the solos also provide good sight-reading material.

In this book you will find 120 2-bar ii-V riffs--ten different riffs for each of the 12 keys. Learning these riffs in all possible positions and using as many different fingerings as possible will help students learn the fingerboard and find the best fingerings and positions for them.
