Starting where his Serious Jazz Practice Book left off, guitar legend Barry Finnerty has created another woodshed classic for all jazz soloists.
Recording artist with Miles Davis, the Brecker Bros., the Crusaders, Barry shows how to become a better improviser by melodically mastering the individual chords used in jazz, how they connect with each other, and how they are used in various song forms.
Among the sections of the book are:
