"Have you ever wondered how guitarists like Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall find such full, luscious voicings for their chord melody playing? Well, much of that sound is based on the ""Drop 2"" principle of chord voicings. JAZZ GUITAR VOICINGS: THE DROP 2 BOOK by veteran jazz guitarist Randy Vincent explains exactly how you can get that same sound too! Includes a thorough discussion of:

  • All the basic principles of drop 2 melody harmonization, including passing tones and extension tones, as well as basic chord tones
  • Practical, guitar-friendly methods for creating hip, modern sounds by ""tweaking"" the basic drop 2 voicings
  • Clear methods for soloing and comping in drop 2
  • An organized practice routine, including fingerboard diagrams as well as standard notation, to fully develop all of theEE above, with a minimum of theory.
JAZZ GUITAR VOICINGS: Vol. 1 - THE DROP 2 BOOK covers this essential material in a unique way, unlike any other guitar book ever published! Includes 2 CDs of the author demonstrating each exercise.".
