Guitar Notation Legend

Hello, and welcome to ProLicks Jazz Solos for Guitar. In this book, I'm going to walk you through six original guitar solos. Each one is based on classic lead (and rhythm) patterns used in jazz and is full of licks and ideas that you'll be able to use in your own playing. We'll cover a variety of styles and techniques-including arpeggios, scales, tension and resolution, blues forms, chord soloing, virtuoso-style fills, and more-giving you a solid foundation in playing and improvising jazz guitar. Many of the styles and techniques in this book are based on the masterful soloing of players like Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Tal Farlow, George Benson, and more. You'll be able to listen to me solo using many of their favorite techniques on the accompanying CD, then I'll dissect each and every solo, note for note, so that you can master these styles as well.

How to Use This Book
As you work your way through the solos in this book, you'll discover that there are a lot of short phrases that you can learn, lift out. and use in your own style of playing. In other words, you don't have to learn each solo exactly the way it was played on the CD. You can listen through the entire CD, hear everything that I'm going to play for you, then go back and pick out the phrases you like best. Then you can learn those phrases and incorporate them into your own style of playing. It's good practice to take all of these ideas and then mix them in with what you already know how to play. Of course, there are things to be learned by playing an entire solo: how the solo builds, how to make a transition from one chorus to the next, how to begin and end the whole thing. Those are elements of style that make the phrases fit together so that they actually sound good. But the individual phrases themselves can be picked out and used in practically any jazz solo. With a little tweaking, these phrases can also be used in songs with different tempos and in different keys. In addition to performing the six complete solos on the CD, I'm going to explain each one in depth, phrase by phrase. Each phrase will include Practice Points-detailed directions that will help you understand my note choices and give you ideas for coming up with your own solo phrases over the given chord progressions, using various tricks and techniques. Once you've listened to a solo on the CD, start learning it phrase by phrase using the Practice Points to help you. When you get through, you'll know all the phrases and be able play them along with the solo track or with the rhythm-only track at the end of the chapter-a full-band, minus-guitar track that's also included on the ProLicks CD. Playing along with the rhythm-only tracks will give you an opportunity to get a feel for how your phrasing sounds against a rhythm section and whether or not you're playing correctly. Plus, you can use these tracks to improvise your own jazz solos. Some of the phrases are easier than others. Some are slower; some are faster. Take your time. Practice each phrase as many times as you need to get it right. And most of all, have fun! Tuning notes for reference can be found on track 16 of the CD.

Before You Begin
The guitar sound in jazz is typically clean and warm, with a full-bodied tone and perhaps a touch of reverb. Set your amp clean, roll off the highs, and aim for a smooth, rich tone. The major jazz players almost all use hollowbody electric guitars, such as a Gibson ES-175, Guild Manhattan, or Gretsch White Falcon. But don't worry: If you don't have a hollowbody, you can still play jazz. Many modern jazz guitarists use solidbody guitars and sound just fine.
Also, traditional jazz players don't rely on bends as much as blues, country, or rock players, so they often use heavier gauge strings, which provide a meatier tone. Wound third strings are not uncommon in the jazz world, and while these strings are definitely bend-resistant, they help define the classic jazz guitar tone. Get in Tune First things first: Play Track 16 and tune your guitar to mine. That way, you can play along with the CD and sound great.

Sixteen chord-melody arrangements by Fred Sokolow. Includes 'The Girl From Ipanema', 'How Insensitive', 'One Note Samba' and 'Desafinado'. Also includes introduction and discography.


The sixteen Antonio Carlos Jobim tunes in this book are arranged for the solo guitarist in the jazz guitar chordmelody style. The beauty of this style is that the guitar, like a piano, plays melody, rhythm, and harmony. The melody is usually the top note of each chord. Whether you use a pick or your fingers, the guitar is the perfect instrument to express these beautiful bossa nova songs. Guitar is essential to Brazilian music in general, and to bossa nova in particular, and Jobim played many of his classic hits on guitar.

Jobim will always be remembered as one of the originators of bossa nova, the melodious and rhythmic blend of Brazilian samba and cool U.S. jazz that became a pop sensation in the early '60s. His 600+ compositions include several pop hits and Grammy winners. Tunes like "The Girl from Ipanema," "Wave," and "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)" have been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and countless other jazz-pop singers. Like George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, Jobim created a catalog of hits that will forever be reinterpreted by singers and instrumentalists.

His songs are among the "standards" that most working musicians find essential to their repertoire. Born January 25, 1927 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jobim grew up on Rio's bucolic beach of Ipanema. He often said that the beauty of nature that surrounded him -"the sea, the forest, the mountains, the birds, the lagoon" - influenced his musical composition as much as the piano and guitar lessons he took as a child. He was fascinated by chord changes, and loved experimenting with them. Inspired by Duke Ellington and other jazz bands that came through Rio, Jobim began performing in local nightspots in his early twenties. He developed a mellow guitar and piano style uniquely suited to the expression of his original music. In 1956, Jobim and guitarist Luis Bonfa wrote a musical score for the play Black Orpheus, which, in '59, was turned into a popular French-Brazilian film. The movie's intense music drew international attention to Jobim and Bonfa. That same year, singer guitarist Joao Gilberto recorded Jobim's "Chega de Saudade" for Odeon Records, a Brazilian company for which Jobim was musical director. More than a major hit, the tune defined the budding musical form. As Jobim explained it, in Corcova, Brazil, "bossa" refers to the soft hump above a bull's shoulders, which swings gracefully when the animal walks. Bossa nova has the graceful swing of the Brazilian samba, but with subtler chord changes and more relaxed vocalizing.

Subsequent recordings by Gilberto, helped popularize the new sound, but it really took off internationally when U.S. sax player Stan Getz toured Brazil in 1961 and began cutting bossa nova albums, first with jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd, then with Bonfa, Gilberto, and Jobim. These recordings for Verve were very successful (the Getz/Byrd collaboration entitled "Jazz Samba" was 1962's number one pop album), and bossa nova entered the mainstream.


In the next few years, Jobim, Bonfa, and Gilberto recorded many hit albums and concertized at Carnegie Hall and all over the world. The bossa nova craze peaked with the 1964 release of "The Girl from Ipanema," featuring Getz, Gilberto, Jobim, and a sultry vocal by Gilberto's then-wife, Astrud. The tune went to #5 on pop charts and won a "Record of the Year" Grarnmy. It has become one of the ten most recorded songs of all time.

During the next few decades, Jobim lived in Los Angeles and continued to write hit tunes, perform, and create film scores. His concerts often featured members of his family including his son Paulo on guitar and his vocalizing second wife, Ana Lontra and daughter, Elizabeth. There was a "second wave" of interest in bossa nova in the late '80s, but Jobim was scornful of the vagaries of the pop music business. In 1989 he told and interviewer, "How boring, how annoying to be modern. I want to be eternal, not modernal." "Tom," as Jobim was called in Brazil, lived his last years in a Manhattan penthouse with his family, making music and devoting much of his time to environmental causes. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1991 and received numerous other awards and honors. Since his death in December of 1994, several tribute albums have been released by jazz luminaries. There is no doubt that his music will continue to bring enjoyment to millions in the decades to come. As his colleague Oscar Neves said, "The beauty of his music is everlasting."

Series: Stylistic Method
Medium: Softcover with CD
Author: Troy Stetina

Troy Stetina is internationally recognized as a leading author, teacher, musician, and critically-acclaimed guitar virtuoso. His books, methods and videos from the TROY STETINA SERIES have been applauded by the guitar magazines and used by teachers and players the world over. Troy has also been a contributing editor for Guitar World, Guitar School, and Guitar One magazines, and he has created rock and metal programs for workshops as well as a universitylevel program at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. The youngest in a family of Olympic cyclists from Indianapolis, Troy grew up on the competitive U.S. Cycling circuit and captured several National medals. But racing was more a family imperative than a personal choice, and music was his passion. At the age of 12, Troy had begun playing guitar in his spare time. Primarily self-taught, he was first inspired by the hard rock rhythms of Kiss and then the lead guitar legends Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads, on which he spent countless hours going over each and every note by ear. Later, he honed his technique on the classical music of Bach, Beethoven, Vivaldi, and the legendary violinist Nicolo Paganini. By the age of 18 Troy had his own ideas, and much to his parent's dismay he left athletics behind, chucked a full college scholarship and set out for a life of fame in rock and roll ... Troy moved to the revered and legendary city of beer-Milwaukee-in order to take a position on the faculty of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and form the rock and metal guitar program. There, as Director of Rock Guitar Studies, he carved out a niche as a top-level music educator with flawless technique, writing a number of best-selling metal guitar methods for Hal Leonard Corporation and performing solo "shred" guitar versions of the 24 Caprices, Perpetual Motion, and other technically demanding pieces at various Conservatory events. (Interestingly enough, the Conservatory happened to be less than a mile from the spot where he won the National Cycling Championships some years earlier, on the Milwaukee lakefront.) Eventually his focus began to shift from guitar technique toward songwriting, which was reflected in his 1993 recording Set the World on Fire (Screarnin' Cat Records) with co-writer/vocalist Shauna Joyce. An accompaniment to the book Secrets to Writing Killer Metal Songs, this release received rave reviews from critics around the world with its well-crafted songs and striking guitar work. Also that same year, Troy finally decided to leave the Conservatory in order to work with musicians in both New York City and Los Angeles. Now, from his 1700's style home high in the countryside, he continues working with various musicians around the world, writing guitar methods and magazine columns, composing solo projects, as well as performing and teaching at guitar workshops and master classes. For a list of books, methods, and videos in the TROY STETINA SERIES, see the last pages at the end of this book.

Because rhythm and timing lie at the foundation of everything you play, its importance can't be underestimated. This series will give you that solid foundation you need. Starts with simple upbeat rhythms for the beginner and moves step by step into advanced syncopations - all demonstrated with seriously heavy metal examples that have practical applications to today's styles.

The TROY STETINA SERIES is a complete system for mastering metal and building solid musicianship. Taken together, the methods of the series cover the full spectrum of playing from the beginning all the way up to the most advanced rhythm and lead concepts, fretboard pyrotechniques, theory, melodic principles, songwriting, and how to develop your own personal lead style. In short, the series will take you to a professional level of playing. It is written by someone who specializes in metal so each method gives you what you need to get playing quickly and correctly. Brief descriptions of the books and videos of this series appear at the end of this book. You can use this to help you navigate through the series, selecting what is best for you. It is generally a good idea to use two or even three complementary books at a time, in order to have plenty of variety in your practice. Each book comes with accompanying audio so they can be used individually as well as with the guidance of a teacher.


The Metal Rhythm Guitar method is designed to get you-the beginning guitarist-playing serious metal guitar as quickly as possible. It jumps right into the real thing, and before you know it, you'll be jamming on metal tunes with a full backing band! You'll be learning the chording, riffs, rhythms and progressions used by leading bands-from Guns 'N' Roses, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam, to other classic bands such as Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Motley Crue, and the Scorpions. As you probably know, metal in the '90s isn't just one style, but has progressed into a broad range of "substyles" which we could call pop metal, thrash metal, grunge metal, alternative metal, punk metal, progressive metal, rap metal, and so on. (The lines between them are often fuzzy.) Each embodies different attitudes and uses different stylistic elements, yet they also share quite a lot in common-they all use different applications of metal guitar. In this method, we'll shed some light on each of these categories, while we build the solid underlying musical foundation you need to play guitar well. To teach all of this, Metal Rhythm Guitaremploys a series of exciting "mini-songs," or jams with bass and drums, which progress from simple to advanced. And in case you are wondering, you don't have to wait to get to the good stuff. The first song appears right at the end of the first chapter. Volume 2 continues with the same format and concludes with the full instrumental tune "Babylon," which applies nearly all the concepts and techniques learned throughout Metal Rhythm Guitar. (The complete lead guitar track of "Babylon"likewise appears at the end of the companion lead guitar method.) You may also find it helpful to supplement this book with others to keep more variety in your practicing. Check out Metal Lead Guitar Primer and/or the beginning rock videos mentioned at the end of this book. Good luck with your playing, and enjoy the method! 

Because rhythm and timing lie at the foundation of everything you play, its importance can't be underestimated. This series will give you that solid foundation you need. Starts with simple upbeat rhythms for the beginner and moves step by step into advanced syncopations - all demonstrated with seriously heavy metal examples that have practical applications to today's styles.
