Gateway to Guitar Improvisation (A Guitarist's Guide to the Revolutionary Fourth Note Principle). For Guitar. Guitar Educational. Arpeggios, Scales, Technique and Improvisation. Instructional book and examples CD. Guitar notation legend, guitar tablature, chord names, instructional text, introductory text, guitar notation legend and fingerings. 84 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.842058).

ISBN 0634035622. With guitar notation legend, guitar tablature, chord names, instructional text, introductory text, guitar notation legend and fingerings. Arpeggios, Scales, Technique and Improvisation. 9x12 inches.

Learn to improvise freely over any chord progression! The Fourth Note principle is a truly remarkable method for improvising in jazz and other genres, combining ear training, theory and technique to enable students to play with unrestricted creativity. In this book/CD pack, master guitarist Tony DeCaprio shows how to incorporate this technique using focus notes to anchor your playing within a chord progression through comprehensive, step-by-step instruction with examples for practical application of every new concept. The accompanying CD includes 99 full-demo tracks. A totally unique and revolutionary concept for teaching improvisation. There is nothing even remotely similar on the market. The approach is refreshing and brilliant. I highly recommend this book to both students and teachers. - Jimmy Bruno.

  • February 12, 2013 Gateway to Guitar Improvisation

    What can l say about Tony De Caprio? Ceribal, deep, spirtual thinker. This book is what l would consider advanced. But since l am in the intermediate level and want to challenge myself with new and different concepts. l am gravitated to greeat teahcers like Tony. And since l can...

    not take a one on one class with Tony, this book is next best thing. l would take this book in small pieces. In other words, take the concepts and play around with them to get them under your fingers and in your ears.

  • August 28, 2008 Good but some chords too advanced

    I found the music somewhat helpful in understanding the method of approach but I'm not readily familiar with the advanced chords used and so find myself fumbling through the musical interpretations !

  • September 04, 2007 A different angle on improvisation

    Tony D's book outlines his unique angle of teaching improvisation. He is a killer player and has a passion for teaching. This approach is a bit of a departure from the standard academic approach found in University curricula and other methods.

  • July 22, 2007 Work of Art!

    Tony DeCaprio's Gateway is one of those rare finds in a method book, in that once the simple directions are followed, the knowledge gathered, along with the consequent application, may be very easily assimilated and amazing results will undoubtedly ensue. The book is far away from so many of...

    the 'spoon-feeding' systems and 'paint-by-numbers' or formula approaches. In other words, yes, we all know what we are supposed to play and most of us know how to copy some famous player's licks or entire style for that matter, but what about each of us as individuals (with our own personal musical expressions)? Gateway helps to bring out the individual rather than to encourage the anti-art of mere mimicry. DeCaprio has really hit a home run with this jewel!
