After the success of his first publication A Chordal Concept for Jazz Guitar, renowned Australian guitarist Peter O'Mara explores the depths of jazz improvisation from a guitarist's point of view. This new book covers a wide variety of topics---scales, intervals, triads, non-tertial triads, four-note structures, five-note structures (pentatonic scales), as well as useful practical exercises. Fourteen modes and their applications are covered in detail. The book also includes a play-a-long CD, MIDI files, as well as a demonstration CD. A must for the contemporary jazz guitarist!
