INFORMAZIONI SU QUESTO LIBRO

Hai fatto una grande scelta nel decidere di imparare a suonare il blues - e quale strumento 
migliore per cimentarsi con esso della chitarra acustica, che è stata l’amata e fedele compagna dei 
musicisti blues sin dagli albori di questo stile musicale? Se sei un principiante assoluto, troverai i 
primi passi che ti proporrà questo libro semplici e divertenti. Si offre molto anche al musicista 
con più esperienza. In ogni caso, stai sicuro che troverai nel blues uno stile ricco e appagante.
Con un po’ di esercizio, ti riuscirà facile padroneggiare la maggior parte degli esempi musicali 
proposti in questo libro. La musica sul CD probabilmente ti suonerà familiare; molti grandi 
artisti blues impiegano le tecniche illustrate nel libro. Poniti l’obiettivo di imparare tutta la musica 
proposta in ciascun capitolo, e sarai sulla buona strada per diventare un vero chitarrista blues.
Non è necessario che tu affronti questo libro seguendo strettamente l’ordine delle pagine. 
Potresti trovare più divertente saltare qua e là. Esegui dapprima gli esempi più semplici e, non 
appena ti senti più sicuro, inizia a lavorare su materiale di maggior difficoltà. Un’altra opzione 
è quella di ascoltare il CD e di dedicarti innanzitutto agli esempi o alle canzoni che preferisci. 
Assicurati, in ogni caso, di studiare la teoria musicale proposta; ti renderà un musicista migliore.
Il blues ha influenzato profondamente rock, jazz, country, R&B e sostanzialmente ogni altro 
genere di musica moderna. Come musicista blues, avrai confidenza con molti elementi che è 
possibile rinvenire in questi altri stili, e disporrai quindi di un’ottima base di partenza per studiare 
qualsiasi genere di musica moderna.
Il blues è come un pozzo. Puoi prendere un po’ di acqua dalla superficie ed ottenere una 
bevanda rinfrescante. Ciò potrebbe essere paragonato a una persona che fa i primi passi musicali, 
imparando alcune canzoni. Ma il pozzo è profondo, e c’è ottima acqua a tutti i livelli, sino al 
fondo. Puoi suonare il blues per anni e continuare a imparare e ad abbeverarti a questo pozzo. 
La tua padronanza del materiale proposto in questo libro è solamente il primo sorso. Divertiti!
Questo libro contiene un CD. Utilizzarlo ti aiuterà a rendere lo studio più piacevole 
e le informazioni più ricche di significato. Ascoltare il CD ti permetterà di interpretare correttamente i ritmi e il feel di ciascun esempio. Il simbolo a sinistra appare in 
prossimità di ciascuna canzone o esempio la cui esecuzione è contenuta nel CD. Il 
numero dell’esempio è indicato sopra il simbolo. Il numero della traccia sotto ad ogni 
simbolo corrisponde direttamente alla canzone o esempio che desideri ascoltare. La 
prima traccia ti aiuterà ad accordare lo strumento

 

LA SETTIMA BEMOLLE
In questo contesto utilizziamo il termine “bemolle” per indicare genericamente l’abbassamento
di semitono della settima. Ad esempio, se abbassiamo di un semitono un sol #, otteniamo un sol
naturale. Sol # è il settimo grado della scala di LA maggiore, quindi sol n è considerato la b
7. Di seguito viene proposta una variazione sullo schema precedentemente visto che alterna accordi
“5” e “6”. Se utilizzi il quarto dito della tua mano sinistra per premere la corda un tasto più avanti
rispetto alla collocazione della sesta, ottieni una b 7. Si tratta di una sonorità fondamentale nel blues.
Questo shuffle è basato sulla forma di blues più comune. 

suona il suo originale e dinamico stile di chitarra acustica blues dagli anni settanta. Ha scritto quattro libri dedicati al fingerstyle, tra cui Beginning Fingerstyle Guitar (The National Guitar Workshop/Alfred #14099). Lou ha suonato molto come artista solista e come parte del duo Fletcher & Manzi, con Rob Fletcher. Il loro CD, Horsin’ Around Live, comprende pezzi originali che miscelano blues, jazz e rock.  Appare anche su Remembrance, una compilation dedicata ai veterani americani. Lou è insegnante in diverse scuole del Connecticut, e fa parte del National Guitar Workshop dal 1984. Riconosciuto come valido insegnante di chitarra acustica e di blues, ha tenuto seminari didattici in tutti gli Stati Uniti.

Pentatonic Soloing Strategies for Guitar takes the most common improvisational tool, the pentatonic scale, and shows you its almost limitless possibilities. It begins with standard major and minor pentatonic scales in the five basic positions and quickly moves into challenging pentatonic variations for string skipping and sweep picking. The book culminates with a series of substitution scales, including the rootless 9th, the half-diminished, and the whole-tone augmented pentatonic scales. A CD demonstrating all the examples in the book is included:

EXAMPLES IN TAB AND STANDARD MUSIC NOTATION.

 

INTRODUCTION
The pentatonic scale is a scale consisting of five notes. It can be found in almost every style of music, from early African-American spirituals such as "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" to the classical compositions of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel to the bluesy rock guitar sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton.
Players sometimes fall into the rut of playing the "same old pentatonic licks." This book-which will change how you think about the pentatonic scale-is the remedy for this situation.
This is not a beginner's book. To use it effectively, you should already have a working knowledge of music, music theory, and the minor and major pentatonic scales. However, a quick review of the basics is included on page 5. A review of the minor and major pentatonic scales follows (starting on page 11), after which you will learn many new and exciting ways to manipulate and rework these basic scales. Most importantly, practical applications are provided.
There are lots of new ideas in this book to stimulate your own creativity. You can write
down ideas that come to you on the blank page (page 95) at the end of this book. Good luck!

A compact disc is included with this book. Use the CD to help ensure you're capturing the
feel of the examples and interpreting the rhythms correctly. The symbol shown at the left
appears next to every example that is on the CD. Example numbers are above the symbol,
while the track number below the symbol corresponds directly to the example you want to
hear. If there's a decimal (1.1,1.2, etc.), it means that there's more than one example on the
track. Track I provides tuning notes for your guitar.

fun and easy to explore the fascinating styles of a continent
rich in musical traditions.
Guitar Atlas: Africa

Guitar Styles From Around the Globe
20450

African guitar is a big subject, as big as the continent itself. Africa is 54 countries and
many hundreds of distinct ethnic groups, and while most people think of African music
as principally drumming and singing, there is an astounding number of guitar styles
unique to particular African settings. Paul Simon's breakthrough 1986 album
"Graceland" focused international attention on South African pop music and initiated
a process of discovery for cutious music fans around the world. What they found was
the dazzling array of music styles we now call Afropop. From the tangled guitar boogie
of the Congo-soukous music-to the serene percussive weave ofNigerianjuju music,
to the flashy fingerpickers of Mali and Madagascar, Africa's treasure chest of beautiful
and originaI contemporary guitar idioms seems inexhaustible.
Many of these idioms deserve a book of their own. Some are extensions of ancient
musical traditions that used indigenous instruments for centuries before the first
guitars carne to Africa with Portuguese sailors in the 16th century. These "roots"
genres sometimes have rich, widely inrerpreted repertoires and diverse, demanding
techniques specifically developed to render the sounds of African instruments on
guitar. Even brazenly modern guitar styles, like those in the Congo, have achieved
a remarkable level of depth and rigor within a few short decades of developmenr.
For all the travel and study l've put in, l've only scratched the surface of Africa's
guitar wealth. But l've learned enough to convey a number of important principI es
of some key African guitar styles.
That is the limited objective of Guitar Atlas: Africa. The African guitar styles introduced
here are by no means the only ones worthy of study. They are simply the ones I have been
fortunate enough to discover, and the ones l've become intrigued enough to tackle as a
player. This book would not have been possible without the openness and generosity of
the many guitarists who have shared their wisdom with me. Using the principles and
fundamentals in this book as a starting point, players will be able to approach recordings
of African music with greater appreciation and understanding. Still, mere is no substitute
for sitting down with those who grew up playing these styles, especially ifyou can do so in
Africa. My fondest hope for this book is that it will inspire other players to dig dee per into
this underexamined world of guitar music. I hope others will make their own journeys,
write their own books and articles, and bring as yet undiscovered African guitar geniuses
to international attention.
Guitar Atlas: Africa assumes that you have some experience playing and reading standard
music notation and/or TAB, and that you have some experience with both
fingerstyle and flatpick playing. It also assumes that you have some understanding of
basic music theory-time signatures, rhythms and note values (ranging from whole
notes to sixteenth notes), intervals, harmony (chords and chord symbols), and so on.

 

Banning Eyre has played guitar professionally since me mid1970s,
working in genres as diverse as jazz, flamenco, dancerock,
and reggae. Since 1990, he has specialized in guitar
styles from Mrica, making six trips to the continent to research
guitar music. Over the years, Banning has played in a
series of Congolese soukous bands in Boston, in the West Mrican
folk ensemble Cora Connection, and with a variety of
musicians performing Zimbabwean mbira music. He teaches
Mrican guitar styles, both privately and in workshops at Tribal
Soundz in New York City.
During travels in Mrica, Banning has performed with the Super Rail Band of Bamako
and Sali Sidibe in Mali, and with Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited in
Zimbabwe. He plays on two Thomas Mapfumo albums, "Chimurenga '98" and
"Chimurenga Explosion," and on a track from Taj Mahal and Toumani Diabate's
"Kulanjan" (Hannibal, 1999), voted the Folk Roots Album of the Year in the UK.
Banning has written about international music, especially Mrican guitar styles, since
1988. He comments and reporrs on music for National Public Radio's All Things
Considered and contributes regularly to the Boston Phoenix, Guitar Player, Rhythm,
Folk Roots, The Beat, CM] New Musie Monthly, and the Musie Hound and All Musie
Guide series of books. He has traveled extensively in Mrica and produces regular
programs for the public radio series Afropop Worldwide.
In 1995, Banning co authored AFROPOPf.- An Illustrated Guide to Contemporary Afriean
Musie with Sean Barlow. His critically acclaimed book In Griot Time: An Ameriean
Guitarist in Mali (Tempie University Press, 2000) recounts his seven-month apprenticeship
with DjelimadyTounkara of the Super Rail Band of Bamako, Mali. He compiled a
companion CD, In Griot Time: String Musie from Mali (Stern's Mrica, 2000), including a
number of his own recordings of musicians in Mali. Banning is currently at work on a
book abour Thomas Mapfumo and the contemporary history of Zimbabwe.
Banning is the senior editor.

A compact disc is available with each book of this series. Using these discs will help make learning more enjoyable and the information more meaningful. The CD will help you to play the correct notes, rhythms and feel of each example. The track numbers below the symbols correspond directly to the example you want to hear. Track 1 will help you tune to this CD.

To become a better blues guitar player, you need to spend some serious time "learning the moves" -the techniques that blues guitarists employ and the little tricks of the trade that make them sound so good. This book is fJled with exercises that can help you with specific technical problems.
The exercises presented in this book cover all the important blues guitar techniques, such as string bending, pentatonic scales, hammer-ons and pull-offs, double stops, barre chords, advanced chords, pedal-steel tricks, blues changes, and there is even a chapter on slide guitar playing. There are also lots of exercises designed solely to train your fretting-hand fingers to act independently, which is not something they do naturally.
We also cover the picking hand in this book. Alternate picking exercises and pick-and-fingers techniques are examined in detail. Also, there is an extensive look at chords-the best ones to use, how to easily move from one to another, the most common sets of strings on which chords are played, how to recognize when to use anchor fingers and how to employ devices such as harmonics. Technical training is challenging, and may even seem somewhat daunting. But with application on your part, and a willingness to work at each exercise until it is mastered and understood, you will become a much better player. All the exercises follow the philosophical principle of "Occam's Razor," which says that the easiest, simplest way to do things is generally the best way. If you don't like the fingerings I've used, don't use them. But I think they are the easiest and if you give them a chance, you'll probably come to see why rchose them.
There may be some symbols you have not seen before:

I) = Extension 1. Extend (reach) your first finger out of position one fret, but do not move your hand out
of position.

4) = Extension 4. Same as extension 1, except with your 4th finger
I hope this book helps you play cleaner, faster and with better articulation. The goal, as always, is no mistakes. See you at the gig.


Buck Brown knows that guitar playing is the "real job" his mom always told him to get. In the past 35 years, he has been fortunate to play with such great artists as Nils Lofgren, Tony Trischka, Stacy Phillips, Dave Hamburger, Robert Lee Castleman, Mark Egan and all ot the incredible teachers at the National Guitar Workshop (where he taught from 1984 to 1991). Buck has written ten National Guitar Workshop publications (under the name Robert Brown) including Chord ConnectwrlJ, his masterwork on guitar harmony.
As a composer, he has written music for innumerable episodes ofAmerua J MOJt Wanted, has won an Emmy Award in Cleveland, a Bronze Medal at the New York Film Festival and has been nominated twice tor Helen Hayes Awards in Musical Theatre. When he is not on the road, Buck plays and teaches in Washington, D.C., is married to the fabulous chanteuse Rebecca Davis, uves with three dogs, bats right, throws right and plays loud.

Great musical ideas need great chops to back them up. Build your finger strength, flexibility and independence with these exercise books from one of America's leading guitar schools.
Each book addresses skills needed for a specific style. For example, Jazz Chops covers the finger independence needed for smooth, rapid changes between complex jazz chords in the context of important progressions, such as ii-V-I. Blues Chops has exercises for developing bending, the different shuffle rhythm patterns, turnarounds, blues trills and more.
Rock Chops deals with all the important soloing techniques, such as speed picking, sweeping, tapping, harmonics, scale sequencing and so on.

BLUES LEAD GUITAR SOLOS. Wayne Riker CD TABLATURE

BLUES LEAD GUITAR SOLOS. CD TABLATURE

By Wayne Riker. For Guitar. Guitar Method or Supplement. Blues. Book & CD. 96 pages. This book teaches how to organize all your great ideas into power-packed leads by providing a complete analysis of 16 full-length solos. Each one is discussed in detail, covering everything from the particular blues form to the structure and techniques used. Styles include Chicago blues, Delta blues, rock blues, slow blues, "Stormy Monday" style and the minor blues. All 16 solos are performed on the accompanying CD.

Welcome to Blues Lead Guitar Solos. This book pravides a great opportunity for
you to learn how to better structure and shape a blues solo by studying 8- and 12-
bar solos in a variety of keys. Some of these solos extend through two and three
choruses, creating 16-, 24- and 36-bar scenarios. In solos with more than one chorus,
the end of each chorus is marked with a double bar. Eleven blues solo styles,
including Chicago, Delta, rock, slow, "Stormy Monday," minor, funk, jump, jazz and
gospel, are analyzed harmonically, rhythmically and melodically to help you learn to
create a strong musical solo. Make sure to use the accompanying CD to hear the
rhythmic feel, tempo and chord voicings for each example. The CD also includes a
backing track for each solo, allowing you to practice jamming along with the band. At
the back of the book there is a scale glossary and an arpeggio glossary as references
for many of the licks used in these solos and for creating your own.
This book assumes that you are familiar with:
• Reading standard music notation and/ or tablature
• Scales: major, minor, pentatonic and the modes of the major scale
• Blues techniques such as bending, slides, vibrato and so on
• Music theory, including chord construction and diatonic harmony (using
Roman numerals to describe chord progressions, such as I-lV-V)
• Chord extensions and alterations, such Cg or C749
• The most basic blues form, the 12-bar blues.
There is a quick review of reading standard music notation and tablature on the
following four pages (6-9). For basic information about music theory, check out any
or ali of the following books from the National Guitar Workshop and Alfred:
 
Beginning Blues Guitar (Alfred #8230)
Intermediate Blues Guitar (Alfred #8233)
 
Creating a solo is like writing a story. You want to present a thoughtful beginning,
middle and end that tell a tale that will capture the audience's attention. Many of
these solos are compilations of ideas l've generated by listening to players in ali
styles of music. As you compile your own vocabulary of licks, make sure you are
always aware of what chord the lick is being used against. A lick that works well on
the I chord may not work as well over the V chord, and so ono
Apply the ideas in this book along with information fram other sources, such as the
Blues Licks Encyclopedia (Alfred #18503). If you haven't already, start playing with
other musicians. Learning to play strang, musical solos is difficult unless you jam with
other musicians and hear the dynamics of your solo in a graup setting. Jam with a
friend, join a group, attend jam sessions or play along with backing tracks.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK
Since this book explores a wide variety of blues styles and improvisational ideas, it is not absolutely necessary that you proceed chapter by chapter. However, the book has been organized in a way that progressively adds new terms and information in each chapter. Don't assume you know everything about a subject, even if it's one of your strengths. Everyone approaches the blues from a different perspective, so if one new concept that you learn from this book helps your playing, it's worth it. No book can make you a better player. You have to go out and play to improve. A book can provide new vocabulary that can be added to your musical repertoire. Whether you play informally or professionally, try immediately plugging examples you like into your playing. For the single-note examples, experiment with different phrasing, add your own notes to extend a lick or play the same lick on different string sets. The musical definition section at the beginning of this book should be used as a glossary. Look up any terms or concepts you don't understand. You should read the basic theory section to make sure you have no gaps in your understanding of keys, intervals, harmonized scales, etc. Taking a college level course or obtaining a couple books in theory is a good way of improving your theoretical knowledge. Becoming a good musician as well as a good guitarist is essential, particularly if you are going to play professionally.

DEDICATION
This book is dedicated to my parents, Virginia and Walter Riker, and to my two children, Tara and Trent, who have all stood by me in the best and worst of circumstances.
