Targeting Chord Tones in Scales
If you have been working with the previous chord progressions and improvising using
the correct major scale, you are probably starting to notice that your solos are sounding
pretty good most of the time. But, you might also notice that it is possible to play a note
from the scale that doesn’t sound so great over a particular chord. This is because the
best-sounding notes to use over a chord are the notes in the chord itself. This does not
mean you should avoid using other notes in the scale.
Generally, you want to start your melodic line on a chord tone and use the non-chord
notes to travel from chord tone to chord tone. This is known as spelling out the chord
changes. While this can take a bit of time to perfect, the following method should help
you accelerate the process.
Arpeggios are the notes in a chord played consecutively rather than simultaneously. In
the approach shown here, you will learn all the arpeggios for the seven diatonic chords
within a particular major-scale fingering.
Here is the major-scale fingering that the arpeggio fingerings will be based on (2-E in C):....

Here are the diatonic arpeggios and their corresponding chord shapes within this scale. Once you have learned the arpeggio shapes, practice them by playing the chord, followed by the arpeggio, and then the chord again. In time, you will learn to associate the arpeggio with the chord itself. .....

With the same chord progressions you’ve been using for the previous exercises, you’re
going to apply both upper and lower neighbor tones in Exercise 5. Once again, you want
the chord tone to land on beat 1 of the measure. This means one of the neighbor tones
must be played on beat 4 while the other neighbor tone must be on the & of beat 4 of
the previous measure. You’ll do this every time the chord changes in the progression.
Again, be sure to record at slow tempos to start. Both neighbor tones are circled ....

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Modal Soloing Strategies for Guitar, the only book about the modes
you may ever need. This book is for intermediate to advanced guitarists desiring
a thorough understanding of modes and their applications for improvising. For
those unfamiliar with the basics of notation and music theory, there is a review
starting on the next page. If you are already familiar with these basics, you can
skip the review and jump ahead to page 20.
The modes have been in existence for centuries as compositional tools for classical,
folk, and ethnic musicians, as improvisational devices for jazz musicians, and a
source of "new" sounds for rock, pop, and country artists. But, unfortunately,
the subject has been shrouded in mystery, causing many guitar students a lot of
confusion. The confusion may be due to an incomplete overview of the subject.
There are many ways of looking at modes and each one has an important place
in understanding and applying the modes to improvising, composition, or both.
Although modes can be derived from both major and minor scales, this book deals
only with the modes of the major scale. Each chapter is devoted to a particular
mode and will include:
• A notated list of the mode in twelve keys
• Perspective #1: The modal formula, a look at where the half steps occur in
the scale and how it relates horizontally to the fretboard
• Perspective #2: The mode's relationship to the diatonic harmony
• Perspective #3: The mode created by altering another scale
• Perspective #4: The mode's intervallic distance from the "parent" key,
measuring from the root of a chord
• Perspective #5: Deducing a mode's key signature
• Six closed-position fingerings
• Open-position fingerings in every key
• The harmonized mode, with sample chord voicings
• Mode usage
• Practice suggestions
• Licks
• Melodic patterns
• Backing track to practice soloing
Also, sample solos utilizing most of the modes in various combinations have been
included at the end of the book.
One way this book is different from many others is that three fingering options are
covered. The first is the horizontal approach along the single string. The second
is the use of "locked" fingerings or scales that are played in a fixed position. The
third fingering option is the "open" position. When any musical concept is explored
on the guitar, a more complete understanding is accomplished by examining all
three fingering options.
It should be noted here that, while a clear understanding of the modes is important,
it represents only a part of what is needed to become an accomplished improviser.
Modes, in conjunction with other scales, arpeggios, and licks, are only part of the
picture. Improvisation is a lifetime study. Try to keep this in mind.
Each chapter of this book is complete so it's all right to skip around. You can also
move straight through from beginning to end for a very comprehensive study. To
get the most out of this book, you need to transpose all exercises and fingerings in
all twelve keys. At first this may seem like a hassle, but in time it will get easier
and payoff in the form of greater fluency.

NOTATION AND THEORY REVIEW

Tablature (TAB)
Tablature (TAB) is a system of notation that graphically represents the strings and frets of the guitar fingerboard. Each note is indicated by placing a number, which indicates the fret to play, on the appropriate string.

Scale Diagrams
This book is loaded with scale diagrams. The top line represents the first string of the guitar, and the bottom line the sixth. The vertical lines represent frets, which are numbered with Roman numerals.

The root Scale tones First string
Frets Fret numbers

Chord Diagrams
Chord diagrams are similar to scale diagrams, except they are oriented vertically instead of horizontally. Vertical lines represent strings, and horizontal lines represent frets. Roman numerals are used to number the frets.

Chord Name First String -C7
Barre + Fret number
Frets Sixth String

INTRODUCTION
This book is about learning to play in a style we call Chord/Melody. In this style songs are
arranged so the harmony, melody, rhythm and sometimes the bass parts are played simultaneously.
These arrangements can be played alone or, if desired, make it possible for the
guitarist to lead his or her own group. Players who study this style know that it can be one
of the deepest forms of musical self-expression. Also, there are enough concepts to learn
and apply to keep one intrigued for a lifetime.
It has always amazed me that many guitarists just stand there not knowing what to do
when asked to playa song alone. The whole idea behind playing a musical instrument is to
play music -play songs. It seems that most guitarists know the parts of songs they would
play in a band, but if they had to play something as a solo, well, most players would be
stuck.
This book is not for complete beginners. Th: material found here is for the student who
has been studying the information in the first two books of this series, Beginningjazz Guitar
and Intermediate jazz Guitar, or the equivalent. To get the most out of this book you should
be familiar with major scales, chord construction, major chord scales and altered chords.
In the first two books each lesson has two separate sections. The "A" section deals with
chords and harmony while the "B" section covers the topic of single-line improvisation.
This book focuses completely on chord/melody and harmonic concepts. It starts right
where the "A" sections of the Intermediate book left off. (Mastering jazz Guitar Improvisation
starts where the "B" sections in the intermediate book left off.)
While I personally prefer reading musical notation, it is not necessary in order to obtain
maximum results from this book. Examples are written in both standard notation and
tablature. While TAB is effective, it is not nearly as expressive as musical notation. Nonreaders
are missing out on an overwhelming amount of musical and instructional material.
You don't have to be a super sight reader, but the ability to decipher musical notation is
very important. Of course, the better you read music, the better your comprehension
and musicality will be. This will increase your enjoyment.
You may be surprised by the added benefits of becoming proficient in chord/melody playing.
Some of these are: a much greater awareness of harmony, better visualization of
arpeggio shapes, a more sophisticated sense of melody while improvising, and a dramatic
improvement in technique and strength. Also, keep in mind that you may be able to find
employment as a solo guitarist if band gigs aren't available.
After completing this book, you will be able to arrange your own chord/melody tunes and
you will have a deep understanding of chord progressions and harmony. This will allow you
to communicate with other musicians more effectively.
Take your time, practice slowly and have fun!

INTRODUCTlON
Welcome to the second book of a four book series about to playing jazz guitar. The format of this book is the same as Beginning jazz Guitar: each chapter is divided into lessons and each lesson is comprised of two sections. The "A" section of every lesson deals with chord work and harmonic concepts, while the"B" section contains information about single-line improvisation. The CODA section at the end of the book discusses technique and a variety of other areas of interest to jazz guitar students.
To get the most out of this book you should already be familiar with major and minor pentatonic scales, triads and chords with extensions (such as 9ths, I Iths and 13ths), transposition, basic diatonic harmony, the modes of the major scale and melodic patterns. You don't need to be an expert in all of these areas, but a firm grasp of the concepts will certainly help you get through this volume more easily.
This series, Beginning jazz Guitar, Intermediate jazz Guitar, Mastering jazz Guitar: Chord/Melody and Mastering jazz Guitar: Improvisation, covers an enormous amount of material. Be sure to supplement this information with lessons, practice, and other instructional books and video tapes. Also, playing with others is very important for your development.
While the four books in this series progress from elementary ideas to very complex concepts, the more advanced player would benefit by checking out all of them. Even the Beginning book contains some very challenging material. The series is designed so that it can be used as a reference-sort of a catalogue of concepts for jazz guitarists-or as a well organized method to be used with an instructor or on one's own.
I wish you lots of joy as you absorb this information. I hope this book will help you find the self-expression you are looking for through music and the guitar.

A compact disc is available for each book in this series. These discs can make learning with these books easier and more enjoyable. This symbol will appear next to every example that is played on the CD. Use the CD to help insure that you are capturing the feel of the examples, interpreting the rhythms correctly, and so on.

INTRODUCTION
Guitar students typically spend a lot of time looking around for information that will take
them to a higher level. When I was growing up, it was very difficult to learn how to play
jazz. There were no instructional videos, and the books that were available were just not
very helpful. There were no guitar schools. Most students were self-taught and some
took lessons, but really good teachers were very hard to find. I was lucky-I've had some
great teachers.
Today, there are videos, books, guitar schools, tapes, CDs and very talented teachers all
over the place. But there is still something missing: books that give a complete overview
of what you need to know to become a proficient jazz guitarist. Hopefully, this series fills
that gap.
Any student who starts with Beginning jazz Guitar and proceeds through the entire series
will be exposed to most of what they nee-d to know to play jazz guitar. You will
find some complex subjects in this book, as well as some very simple ideas that you can
start to use immediately. Chapter I begins with a discussion of improvising over altered
dominant chords.
This book is not for beginners. It is for guitarists that have worked through Beginning jazz
Guitar and Intermediate jazz Guitar, or have received the same sort of information elsewhere.
To get the most out of this book you should be proficient with the pentatonic
scales, blues scales, the major scale, diatonic harmony and chord scales, transposition,
diatonic arpeggios, neighbor tones, triads, licks and formulas for extended and altered
chords.
Each lesson in the first two books had two seperate sections. The "A" sections dealt with
harmonic principles and chord work while the"B" sections handled the topic of single-line
improvisation. This entire book concerns itself with single-line improvisation. It starts
right where the "B" sections in the intermediate book left off. Mastering jazz Guitar:
Chord/Melody starts where the "A" sections of the intermediate book left off. You may
want to go through the book in order, or you may want to use it as a sourcebook of
concepts and techniques to investigate in your own way.
The concepts and exercises in this book are intended to inspire you for a lifetime of study
and enjoyment. Since jazz improvisation is an ever expanding field of information, one
never really finishes doing this work. Enjoy the journey.
