Product Details


The Jazz Chord / Scale Handbook provides a concise yet comprehensive reference source for chord/scale theory. This is not a "how to" book, but rather a systemized guide to identifying, organizing, and understanding the relationships between virtually all the common (and uncommon) scale/chord relationships used in jazz improvisation and composition. Based on the principle of harmonic systems, the handbook organizes all the modes of major, melodic and harmonic minor, harmonic major, as well as nine different symmetric scales, various pentatonic scales, the blues scale(s), and more. Most importantly, each scale is presented with appropriate modal and functional chord voicings, information about common usage, and examples from the recorded jazz literature.
