Special sections contain uniquely designed slow recorded tracks to help you fully understand the harmonies. Includes step-by-step instructions and examples of common "rhythm" techniques and practice, including the use of blues, diminished, pentatonic, and other scales, and playing the "changes." This set has everything you need to get a true performance-quality understanding of "I Got Rhythm" changes!
