This book features master jazz guitarist Mike Allemana playing twelve bebop style etudes, as written by top US tenorist and Jazzwise Summer School sax tutor Greg Fishman. Also includes Greg playing each etude on tenor saxophone. This allows the guitarist the choice of playing with Mike (guitar) or Greg (tenor). Book also features tablature with Mike's own fingerings. You'll benefit from:

  • specific goals in the introductory text for the intermediate, advanced, and professional level guitarist that will help you get the most out of the etudes.
  • studying the 12 etudes thoroughly, not only because they're excellent examples of fine phrasing but also because the etudes are based on well-known jazz standards such as Take the 'A' Train, Satin Doll, Rhythm Changes, Autumn Leaves, Body and Soul, and Green Dolphin Street.
  • the real ‘jazz language’, which contains wonderful examples of voice-leading, sequences and embellishments that create lyrical, flowing lines.

The CD features 3 tracks of each etude - 1. guitar and rhythm section; 2. tenor and rhythm and finally 3. just the rhythm section. Suggested uses for the set:

1. Just listening to the play along CD's will help you gain an understanding of good jazz tone and phrasing.

2. You will hear how sound and space are used musically in context.

3. Finally, you can use them for transcribing practice that can be checked against the written etudes.
