    However, instead of the folk and blues oriented music of Takoma, including Fahey's American primitive guitar, the early Windham Hill artists and others influenced by them abandoned the steady alternating or monotonic bass in favor of sweet flowing arpeggios and flamenco -inspired percussive techniques. WB: Dad played 4 or 5 nights a week for 20 years straight. This means chord shapes are not inversions, strictly speaking, but the word is as good as any. Perfect for the beginner guitarist who wants to learn more about jazz, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the world of jazz guitar!

    Videos I intend to make a technique video soon, but in the meantime here is an introduction I gave to interpreting a piece by William Bay, which discusses approaches to interpretation. In time, you'll uncover the harmonic and rhythmic shapes behind the licks and they'll become a part of your own musical language. I might record it again later. Lessons I teach via Skype, and privately from my home in Edinburgh. Most examples can be played either fingerstyle or pickstyle.

    Section 2 deals with creating fingerstyle jazz guitar solos and includes: working from chord symbols, using a variety of bass and accompanying devices, writing notation, using major and minor thirds, accompanying with arpeggios, harmonizing a melody with thirds, tenths, and sixths. Don't hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions about our lessons. I wrote the Linear Etudes book for several reasons. These lessons focus on many aspects of rhythm guitar playing. It includes: the 5 patterns, shells, inversions, harmonized scales, slash chords, upper structure triads, voice leading, moving lines and cadences, substitution, chordal voicings and interpretations. For the lesson's culmination, Mike teaches his original tune, Just Too Minor, which features a melodic "head" or melody followed by a variety of comping and soloing ideas.
