Jazz Blues Styles presents guitar solos in the styles of Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Sonny Rollins, and other jazz blues greats. Within the context of the blues, this book teaches: styles of jazz blues; jazz ideas, phrases, and licks; jazz syncopation, the rhythmic language of jazz; jazz phrasing, the breath of jazz; how to use the triplet, altered chords, and slash chords; how to reharmonize the blues; a new innovative vocabulary of jazz chord sequences; how to use fragments of the chords to outline the harmony and create interesting new sounds; and how to play walking bass lines with chords. Joe Diorio's "Right Brain Guitarist(R)" approach helps to direct your playing with your intuitive sense as opposed to your logical sense. The accompanying CD will help convey the subtle nuances of the music.
