Getting into Latin Jazz Guitar composed by John Zaradin. For Guitar (Classical & Fingerpicking). Squareback saddle-stitched, Methods. Getting Into. Latin American. Beginning-Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 96 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20198BCD).

ISBN 9780786667369. Latin American. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

This book is a guide to some of the techniques needed for "getting into latin jazz guitar." There are 5 independent sections: References and definition of terms; exercises and/or pieces which demonstrate various guitar techniques; examples of common Rasgueado patterns; the "Riverboat Suite," studies for developing rhythmic ability and appreciation; and pieces in a variety of different Latin styles. The CD, used in conjunction with the written notation, tablature and chord symbols, gives a clear idea of what is required for players and teachers of all levels. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with guitar and music notation, but glossaries of terms are included for reference. There are a variety of patterns which are employed in the different styles of music; the examples show how to "get into" some basic forms. All the techniques described are playable on the fingerstyle guitar, and the pieces themselves are selected and arranged with performance in mind.
