Introduction

The purpose of this book is to provide jazz- oriented sight-reading material for guitarists at an intermediate level. The exercises are written using common jazz-style phrases and are intended to be played with a "jazz" or "swing"feel.

The music is presented in four sections. The first section is a series of blues etudes intended to help you familiarize yourself with different positions on the guitar. The second section consists of jazz rhythm studies. The third section is a series of etudes in the style of famous jazz tunes, such as All the Things You Are and Stella by Starlight. The final section is a series of duets; some are in the style of popular jazz standards and some are my own original compositions.
