Series: Berklee Press Melodies based on triads and melodic extensions sound more natural and musical than ones developed exclusively from scales. Triads, the fundamental building blocks of harmony, are a simple and effective remedy for scale dependency in improvisation. In Jazz Improvisation for Guitar: A Melodic Approach, explore the potential of triads and their melodic extensions and learn to connect them using guide tones. You'll learn to create solo phrases in the style of some of the world's finest jazz guitarists like Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and Pat Martino. Book & CD, 150 pages.
