Ben Monder Compositions

Ben Monder Compositions composed by Ben Monder. For Guitar (All). Wire bound, Solos. Jazz. Intermediate-Advanced. Book. 264 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20842).

ISBN 9780786678341. Jazz. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

This book of twenty compositions spans an approximately 20-year period of writing. They can all be found on one or another of Ben's four solo releases: Flux, Dust, Excavation, and Oceana. It reflects a broad sample of work involving the exploration of various harmonic, technical, and textural elements of the guitar. There are 6 solo pieces, as well as pieces for trio and quartet, with voice being the 4th instrument. The pieces were chosen for the particular technical challenges they present to the performer. Some unusual fingering techniques are employed, as well as alternate tunings. Standard notation only.

    Let me first that I love Ben Monder's music, and I haven't tired of any of it since being introduced to it about three years ago, despite daily listening. I am impressed by the diversity of songs selected here. I have only worked in earnest on "Windowpane" and...

    have noodled a bit on "Ellenville" and "Echolalia". Thus far, I've found the book free of errors and ambiguity; the fingerings and picking patterns are explicit. The fingerpicking is demanding for an intermediate jazz and classical guitarist like me. I think this book could add considerably to any player's (even advanced) musicianship, whether they are into jazz, "classical", new music, or rock. It's wonderful to begin to understand the mysterious technical and harmonic innovations in this music. I am elated and grateful that Ben took the time to make most of his best stuff available here. Given the length and breadth of this book, it is also a great price.
