    Great. This book starts talking about Mixolydian b2(b6) scales on page 10 rather than wasting the first half of the book teaching you the basics of major and minor chords and how to read music. The first section analyzes the heads of the tunes and how they're put...

    together. Then there's a short section on the building blocks of Miles' solos, and then the final section contains full transcriptions of several of his solos, followed by detailed analysis.
