Music scores including fingerings, tablatures and grid diagrams, along with logical, step by step explanations allow the student to build his own understanding as well as the technical and improvising skills. The CD includes all music material of the book. Each example, exercise and study is recorded. In addition 8 rhythm section tracks provide a set of accompaniments for practical applications of each scale and its appropriate improvisational exercise.
