This book provides the aspiring jazz guitarist a comprehensive knowledge of the compositional and performance techniques of jazz through an understanding of key-center music, improvisation, and visual-tactile relationship with the guitar. Writing in a casual, conversational style, Jackie takes you through examples, etudes, and exercises combining the use of chromaticism, arpeggios, scales, and modes. You will explore effective, new concepts that will surprise and inspire you. The companion play-along CD includes a "live" rhythm section. Written in standard notation and tablature.
