A MODERN METHOD FOR GUITAR JAZZ SONGBOOK, VOLUME 1. CD

A MODERN METHOD FOR GUITAR JAZZ SONGBOOK, VOLUME 1. CD

Based on the best-selling method by William Leavitt

SERIE: GUITAR METHOD
EDITORE: BERKLEE PRESS
SUPPORTO: LIBRO CON CD


Play great jazz while you learn from the most revered guitar method of all time. These solos and duets map directly to the lessons of William Leavitt's Modern Method for Guitar Vol. 1, the basic guitar text at Berklee College of Music. Since the 1960s, the Modern Method for Guitar series has been one of world's most popular guitar methods, translated into Spanish, French, and Japanese, and selling over half a million copies.

 

Carefully overseen and recorded by Larry Baione, chair of Berklee's Guitar Department (and a former student of William Leavitt), these arrangements are crafted to Leavitt's time-proven approach, giving you the chance to apply what you learn to music by Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Sonny Rollins, Django Reinhardt, and other jazz greats. The accompanying CD demonstrates all tunes and offers play-along tracks for practicing the duets.

At Berklee, we constantly encourage our students to apply what they are learning to real music. Over the years, we have found that certain tunes map well to the curriculum in terms of the techniques required to perform them. Bill Leavitt was among the greatest guitar teachers in the history of Berklee College of Music, and his Modern Method/or Guitar books have been central to Berklee's guitar curriculum for many decades. This songbook includes some of my favorite jazz standards to give to students working through the Modern Method/or Guitar Volume 1. In addition to reading these tunes from the jazz repertoire, I encourage you to spend some time with classic recordings and practice transcribing them by ear. Some of these arrangements are for solo guitar, and some are duets. This is similar to the method itself, and it underscores Bill's insistence that guitarists learn to be well-rounded and explore a variety of playing situations. The accompanying recording will let you practice all parts. The solos and duets are of varying levels. Practice them slowly at first, always working on playing them as legato as possible. If the solo pieces are too difficult, start by practicing just the melodies (the single notes and the top notes of the chords). I hope you enjoy this music, and that it inspires you towards further explorations. Larry Baione, Guitar Department Chair, Berklee College of Music
