    on the first "look inside" page, there is a serious error. in the examples with the c chords, the Bb is the "minor seventh" above the root note, but the third note, E, would also have to be flat to make it a c minor seventh. if you ad the...

    note Bb to a C Major chord, the chord is notated C7, but it is called a "Dominant seventh". the funtion of minor and dominant chords is entirely different.

  • November 22, 2004 Exellent Book

    The book, Learn to Play Brazilian Jazz Guitar, is a "one stop shop" for learning every facet of Brazilian Guitar. This book covers the history and theory of Brazilian music. Also within this work are exellent original compostions. The piece titled: Choro Menor, alone is worth the price of the...

    entire book! A CD is included in this study so that the student can hear what the music is suppose to sound like. Unfortunately this work is in standard notation only. This is a shame because it denies the reader of tablature access to good music and the author of potential sales. If you can read music buy this book. If you can't read music, learn how and then buy this book.
