It shows you how to mold a simple Bluegrass melody into a fancy, tasteful, driving guitar solo, a solo that sounds like the true melody of the song while being hot at the same time. Chris Jones analyzes & teaches 10 songs on these 2 one-hour CDs. Each solo is broken down into its component parts, with Chris explaining why he played what he played every step of the way. By learning this approach you will be able to invent your own intelligent, melodic solo for any bluegrass song. Songs Include: Used to Be, Rose of Old Kentucky, Your Love Is Like A Flower, Think Of What You've Done, I Wonder Where You Are Tonight, I Still Miss Someone, Why Don't You Tell Me So, White Dove, Banks of the Ohio, This Heart of Mine There are 2 ways to put a solo together: 1. Playing licks that fit the chord progression 2. Playing the melody & then embellishing it with ornamentation. *Ultimately, number 2 is the approach taken by the more refined experienced players. *Chris Jones, Dan Huckabee, & Paul Kramer teamed up in 1985 to formulate a procedure for teaching the 'melody oriented' concept of solo development & have to date released 4 products that teach the subject. 1. Designing Guitar Solos for Bluegrass Songs 2. Designing mandolin Solos for Bluegrass Songs 3. Creating guitar solos for bluegrass songs 4. Creating guitar solos for banjo instrumentals Choose one or all today... you will be enlightened to a deeper level!. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About Chris Jones Chris Jones leads his own band, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, tours world-wide with his band, & has released 4 CDs.
