Introducing the sounds of jazz into your playing can expand your musical horizons and enrich you as a performer. Jazz Sounds for Guitar presents a clear and easy working knowledge of the types of chords associated with jazz, providing practical, hands-on experience in applying these chords harmonically, melodically, and rhythmically.
All the music is shown with chord frames, standard notation, and TAB. The companion CD provides demonstrations of every example and includes performances with a full band as well as tracks without the guitar part so you can play along.
Topics covered include the major scale & chord construction, jazz sounds for major, minor & dominant chords, altered chords & chord enrichment, chord shapes, patterns, families & progressions, jazz rhythms, and melodic ideas.
