Jazz is one of the biggest challenges a violinist can face, with the thought of improvisation likely to strike fear into the heart of even the best classical player.

An accompanying CD with 65 tracks for listening or play-along is also included. Congratulations to Chris Haigh for creating a well-organized, useful Jazz method book. Haigh draws in his readers with familiar major scales. He gently walks them through pentatonic and blues scales. He weaves in stylistic hints to help players sound more authentic. Then he bravely leads his readers through the complex world of Jazz Theory and harmony. And to make it friendly, he laces the book with just enough humor to get his readers excited about doing the necessary work. His explanations are clear, concise, and charming. Most helpful are the short Musical examples that capture the Musical essences of each player he discusses. His insightful analysis makes it possible to do more than just play by rote, but to internalize the ideas and make them your own...Exploring Jazz Violin is a complete manual for players at all levels to plunge in and get started.--Strings magazine SERIES: String.

Scales, Arpeggios, Fingerings, Theory & Much More!. This book is based on the scale types that are necessary to master and understand the chord/scale relationships found in many styles of Music. By keeping things simple and uncluttered, each page consists of only one scale type, illustrated on a bass guitar neck with the correct fingering - a vital part of organizing the hands. The more organized the hands, the easier it is to play. The arpeggio shape is super-imposed over the corresponding scale in order to create an understanding of the chord/scale relationship. This is better explained with diagrams and not notation. However, because it is a good idea to associate finger positions with their notational equivalents, notation is also included. A simple but comprehensive Jazz Theory section is also included. This will help the student gain a deeper understanding of harmony and further insight into how to apply the scales found in this book.

Jazz Harp      Add to Cart      View price.

Until recently, Jazz has been an idiom largely neglected by harp players, for several reasons. First, there haven't been many players with the technical ability needed to play modern Jazz, and until very recently, most people with that ability were interested exclusively in classical styles. In addition, the harp itself is not designed in a way that makes Jazz easy to play. Jazz requires a smooth, legato attack, and accents in a Jazz line can fall on any part of the beat. It's hard to play the harp legato because of constant breath shifts, and even harder to accent freely. That's why some very skilled harp players have said that they doubt that it's possible to play Jazz on the harp. Richard Hunter doesn't agree. He majored in Music at Harvard University before working with a variety of Jazz and rock bands. He says of Jazz Harp: It was meant to inspire harmonica players to reach for the same goals as their counterparts on other instruments. Music, exercises, Theory, and technique in the Jazz and pop styles of Stevie Wonder, Toots Thielemans, Tom Scott, King Curtis, and others are included in this book/CD pack, along with note-for-note solos for chromatic and marine band harmonica.

Jazz Theory & Workbook is designed for all instrumentalists eager to understand how the Jazz standards they play and improvise over are constructed. It is also a great resource for arrangers and composers seeking new writing tools. While some of the Musical examples are pianistic, this book is not exclusively for keyboard players. In this structured method, every new concept is clearly presented and explained, put in context with one or more Musical examples, and then consolidated with a set of written exercises. In addition, the book is progressive, beginning with a comprehensive presentation of intervals and culminating with an in-depth review of the synthetic modes. Although Jazz is based essentially on a vertical progression of chords, linear mechanisms also determine this style of Music and add to its Musical expressivity. The aim of this book is to present these two complementary approaches, in both a vertical and a horizontal study of Jazz harmony. SERIES: Music Instruction. Media: Softcover. .

Method and Solos for Jump Blues Guitar 2-DVD Set. Cult figure, rock & roll legend and Music writer, Cub Koda defined jump blues as an up-tempo, Jazz-tinged style of blues that first came to prominence in the mid- to late '40s. Usually featuring a vocalist in front of a large, horn-driven orchestra or medium sized combo with multiple horns, the style is earmarked by a driving rhythm, intensely shouted vocals, and honking tenor saxophone solos - all of those very elements a precursor to rock & roll. The lyrics are almost always celebratory in nature, full of braggadocio and swagger. This 2-DVD set is presented as a methodology covering Theory, comping, accompanist riffs, horn lines arranged for guitar, and several approaches for soloing drilling down on many approaches for opening up the neck for the scales, arps and riffs that are employed in swing and Jump Blues guitar. It also ices the cake with 12 tasty solos, followed by in-depth analysis of several jump blues giants such as Brian Setzer, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian, Gatemouth Brown and Freddie King, all of whom have their own signature sound. Accompanying vocalists and soloists is a big part of the style and is as challenging and rewarding as soloing. A sizable chunk of these DVDs are dedicated to voicings, pulling off various rhythms and locking up with the rhythm section. 182 minutes. SERIES: Instructional/Guitar/DVD. Media: DVD. .

The Perfect Way to Rediscover the Piano. Did you use to play the piano? Would you like to play again? This is the first of two books of Play It Again: Piano. It will reunite you with the keyboard using real pieces from the piano repertoire to teach specific techniques and tips, to get you playing fluently once again. The level of pieces in this first book progresses from around UK grades 1 to 4 (elementary to intermediate). Aimed at returning players who have spent some time away from the keyboard, Play It Again: Piano gives you the confidence to revisit this fulfilling pastime and go beyond what you previously thought you could achieve. Each of the 28 pieces in Book 1 is accompanied by two full pages of easy-to-understand practice tips, all designed to get your fingers speeding comfortably across the keys once again! There are more comprehensive Piano Technique and Theory sections at the front and back of each book, so you can also delve deeper to regain a fuller understanding of Music and technique. Each book is arranged in 4 progressive sections, with Book 1 moving from Elementary to Intermediate and Book 2 taking you from Late Intermediate to Late Advanced. Dip in and out wherever your level of playing suits: this two-book course starts with simple and elegant miniatures and concludes with the famously showy Prelude in C-sharp minor by Rachmaninoff! Confident pianists could start with Book 2, but there is a wealth of delightful repertoire and valuable practice tips in Book 1 - it's always useful to go back to basics. Baroque, Classical and Romantic works sit alongside Jazz, Ragtime, contemporary or traditional pieces at every level, so each lesson brings something different and you'll learn to play in a range of styles, some of which may be new to your fingers.
