  • August 09, 2007 Had me comping like a pro by page 5

    40 years ago I first found this amazing book at Manny's, and there is still nothing like Mickey Baker "Complete Course" In Jazz Guitar. This "complete" course boasts 2, thin volumes with no room for non-essentials or hand-holding beginners. You gotta jump right in, but you'll...

    soon know if you're ready or not for these ideas. Mickey works his magic up and down the neck, so if you aren't yet comfortable away from the first position, then most is still beyond your reach, but when you can read and know about major and minor modes and making diatonic extension chords (7+11?), and you no longer get dizzy working above the fifth fret, then you'll be amazed by how fast Mickey has you playing progressions that sound like, well, a real jazz player. Yes, you! Get 'em both, 'cause with the set under $20, it's a no-brainer, and when you dig what Mickey's been laying down, you'll soon be hollerin' for mo' Mickey!

  • May 04, 2007 Great Stuff *****

    The reason I like this book is it elimnates the need to know a thousand cords. It shows you how to use about thirty courds to play any tune; it's great! the structure and layout is very good and gets you playing actual jazz sounds quickly. I had lost...

    my original book and have for years been trying to find it again. This book really turned my playing around. The different ways to use the same chords is awesome and exciting. If you are struggling to get that authentic jazz sound this is the book. I'm glad to find it again! I lost tihs book about twenty years ago. This then lets you know how much I value it.

    I AM A JAZZ PLAYER, I HAVE STUDIED WITH ON AND OFF FOR 25 YEARS WITH HANK MACKIE OF NEW ORLEANS WHO HEADS UP THE JAZZ GUITAR PROGRAM AT UNO. IN THE LAST 25 YEARS OF TEACHING, I JUST KEEP COMING BACK TO THIS LITTLE BOOK. IT'S THE GREATEST...

    BOOK FOR EARLY INTERMEDIATE PLAYERS TO LEARN TO COMP, USE CHORD SUBS, ETC. RIGHT AWAY THEY THINK THEY ARE PLAYING "CHORD MELODIES". CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT IT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A TEACHER.
