Chord-Lead Soloing for Guitar is a complete method for developing fluid double-stop chord melody. This style of playing can be heard most notably in the playing of Jimi Hendrix (in songs such as "The Wind Cries Mary", Little Wing", and "Castles Made of Sand"), as well in the music of the guitarists he influenced, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Chord-lead style playing bridges the gap between straight lead and strictly rhythm, because it is simultaneously chordal (implying a specific major or minor chord) and melodic (carrying a distinct singable melody). This book shows the guitarist how to develop this technique and create continuous connections of moving voicings, merging lead and rhythm into one flowing melodic chordal texture. This is accomplished through a comprehensive collection of chord-lead phrases, each of which is presented in at least three different fingerings (important for whole-neck flow). These phrases are then assembled into soloing etudes that demonstrate practical application over different chord progressionsChord-lead playing can be adapted to every style of music, including rock, jazz, blues, alternative, funk, R&B, country, and pop. Mastering chord-lead soloing also greatly increases a guitarist's ability to "stand alone"; that is, to play by himself unaccompanied by other musicians, mixing and switching between chording and lead improvisation. This book is perhaps the most definitive guide ever written for mastering this highly sought after (yet elusive) style of playing. CD included. Standard notation and tablature.

Wes Montgomery took jazz guitar to a new level when he came to the public's attention in the late 1950's. Known for his fluid lines and his big jazz guitar sound, Wes influenced thousands of guitarists in the styles of jazz, blues, and rock. This book will present some of the soloing techniques that Wes used as well has present many melodic ideas (lines) similar to the way he played over the chord progression in many jazz standards. Because the major and minor ii-V-I progression are the most widely used chord progression in jazz standards, the lines in this text will work over these progressions. the accompanying CD contains many play-along tracks (vamps of one chord and vamps around the circle of fourths) that the student should use to practice the material in one key and then master it in all twelve keys. By learning the techniques used by Wes Montgomery, guitarists will add to their own improvising arsenal. As improvising musicians add to their collection of musical ideas, their ability to express themselves completely increases. Have fun studying these ideas and applying them in improvised solos.Also available in Japanese from ATN, Inc.
