(Book). This practical book with CD helps guitarists improve their ability to play over changes, better understand jazz harmony, and expand their jazz vocabulary. Using examples from his own experiences playing with many well-known musicians, top fusion guitarist Larry Coryell provides dozens of musical exercises - plus original compositions - that challenge guitarists to increase flexibility in their thinking and playing. Topics include: new approaches to playing accompaniment ("comping"); integrating chords and scales in jazz solos; interpreting chord changes; and improvising - the art of creating music spontaneously with other players.
