Classical Jazz Rags & Blues-book 2
Bought these for my students to get away from the standard classical style of playing. The 9 songs in this book have different style rhythms which changes classical to blues,Jazz, and Ragtime. This book 2 has some very good syncopated rhythms, plus I have the students also add some improv....

The Rags are cute.
The Blues aren't very Bluesy but the The Rags are fun. My problem is that I think the original Classical pieces such as "solfagietto" would be very difficult to learn if they weren't taught first. After learning the original then the fun would be to learn the improvisational possibilities.
