Jazz Blues Solos presents guitar solos in the styles of Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Sonny Rollins, and other jazz blues greats. Within the context of the blues, this book teaches: styles of jazz blues; jazz ideas, phrases, and licks; jazz syncopation, the rhythmic language of jazz; jazz phrasing, the breath of jazz; how to use the triplet, altered chords, and slash chords; how to reharmonize the blues; a new innovative vocabulary of jazz chord sequences; how to use fragments of the chords to outline the harmony and create interesting new sounds; and how to play walking bass lines with chords. Diorio's "Right Brain Guitarist´┐Ż" approach helps to direct your playing with your intuitive sense as opposed to your logical sense. The accompanying CD will help convey the subtle nuances of the music. 48 pages.
