These beginning to advanced jazz guitar ensembles are written for four and five guitars by some of the best guitar ensemble arrangers in the business. Arrangers include, Barry Greene, Dave Frackenpohl, Steve Schenkel, Andrian Ingram, and Chris Buzzelli. Not only are these fine performance pieces for ensembles, they are good material for sight-reading. These graded volumes follow Mel Bay's guitar grading system. Each chart in all three levels offers students the opportunity to improvise with rhythm guitar and, in some cases, background figures.
Level II increases in difficulty in each category and explores upper regions of the fretboard; perfect material for high school level or beginning college ensembles. Each volume contains five pieces for the price of what one ensemble piece usually costs.
