Soloing is essential to jazz. For many musicians, it is the ultimate form of self-expression. But for many people, it can be intimidating. Jazz musicians must spontaneously create solos over "tricky" chord progressions, while, at the same time, communicating from the heart. This process can seem mysterious, but Easy Soloing for Jazz Guitar shows you that it’s not. This book is for musicians who already know the basics of guitar, but are looking for a low-stress introduction to the art of jazz improvisation. This easy-to-use book includes standard music notation and TAB and gives you the basic tools to make great, authentic-sounding jazz solos. Whether you are a beginning student of jazz or a more advanced player new to improvised music, you’ll find what you need in this book. A CD demonstrating the examples in this book is included.
