    This book is great study material for intermediate jazz guitarists looking to advance to the next level. The studies in these books show you various concepts you can apply to other tunes you learn. For example, you will learn new chord shapes, comping patterns, licks/lines, and various 'moves' to...

    Difficulty Level:
  • June 05, 2007 Are you ready for life's next challenge?

    It would have been helpful if a CD accompanied this book. I started with "What Is This Thing Called Love?" The arrangement by Bruce Saunders for the chord solo is anything but simple. The comping is also quite advanced. I already own the first volume and I use these books...

    in conjunction with others to study various tunes.
