This comprehensive book combines three volumes by jazz guitar great Frank Vignola; 52 choruses of funky, bluesy and bop-oriented guitar solos played over blues changes in common key signatures. Vignola's solos will allow the reader to feel and hear what it is like to play a well-constructed solo. A companion recording allows the reader to practice the written (and original) solos over rhythm accompaniment at slow and performance tempos. Recorded solos are also included so the reader can practice their accompaniment skills; navigating chord changes, responding to ideas and supporting the soloist. This is a wonderful book for any jazz guitarist looking to improve their solos and offers the reader many ways to practice their skills. The material is written in standard notation and tablature. Includes access to online audio.
