Jazz Guitar Greats

This collection of in-depth text and CD lessons is specifically designed to help the novice player emulate seven jazz guitar giants. The concepts and techniques contained within these workshops are essential to the understanding of how the great players themselves work, and also to the mechanics of jazz guitar playing in general. The important areas of chord substitution, "minorisation," altered tension, chord-scale relationships,comping, pedals, and octave playing are all examined in depth. In addition to offering a wealth of theoretical and practical material, artist bios are presented and analyzed to determine the players' overall significance in the history and development of jazz guitar style and technique. The artists portrayed here are: Kenny Burrell, Hank Garland, Barney Kessel, Pat Martino, Wes Montgomery, Johnny Smith, and Joe Pass. Written in leadsheet format (notation and chord symbols) with chord grid diagrams on selected pieces.

book l5.jpg (13613 bytes)   The Gibson L5  Its History and its Players

Introduced in 1922, the Gibson L5 is the precursor of the modern archtop guitar. It was the first archtop to feature f-holes, which allowed it to project through the horn-dominated bands of the day. Its strong, full, warm sound was an immediate and overwhelming success that turned the heads of makers, players and listeners alike. This book takes a look at its history and most famous players, from its creation, through the Norlin years, to its standing today as the worldճ most popular jazz guitar. With its stunning 16-page full-color photo section, this book is a must for every guitar enthusiast's collection! 8-1/2 inch. x 11 inch..

wes book.jpg (15110 bytes)   Wes Montgomery

Wes Montgomery was unquestionably the most significant jazz guitarist to emerge during the 1960s. During the '70s and '80s he had, like Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt before him, become a major influence on other guitar players. Elements of his style are discernable in many of today's finest players. Although many musicians acknowledge that Wes was one of the finest guitar players of the 20th century, there has been until now a lack of detailed biographical and analytical material. Through this book, guitarists and jazz guitar enthusiasts everywhere will fully understand and appreciate Wes's achievements, so often narrowly categorized as the development of octave playing. The book features over 70 photographs and illustrations, many previously unpublished.
