This book will teach guitarists how to construct and play the scales and modes used in jazz improvisation. While techniques and ideas of the jazz language outside of the scales are note specifically addressed in this book, it is hoped that the student will learn where and how different scales may be applied in jazz improvisation. Each scale is presented with standard notation, tablature, and fingering patterns. Recordings of the chord progressions and etudes are provided so the student can hear how these scales may be used in real life situations. 80 pages.
