Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, proudly partners with National Guitar Workshop to release a comprehensive jazz method for the classical guitar player.The Classical Guitarist's Guide to Jazz removes the barrier to learning to play and improvise jazz music on the classical guitar. Designed for guitarists already familiar with the basics of classical guitar playing and music theory, author Andrew York dives right into the essentials of jazz harmony and chord/melody—focusing on comping, chord voicings, voice leading, and arranging for solo guitar.Guitarists will also conquer improvisation with a complete section on this exciting and fun—yet foreign—aspect of jazz for classical players. York shows you that improvisation is a skill that can be learned and practiced just like any other. By practicing the ear training and visualization exercises, you will learn how to turn the music you hear in your "mind's ear" into imaginative, great-sounding jazz solos. In addition, the included CD contains each of the book’s exercises and examples as performed by the author.The Classical Guitarist's Guide to Jazz is now available as a book and MP3 CD set for $29.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today on alfred.com.
