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.
