Jazz guitar is a wide open place where innovation, interpretation and experimentation run rampant. All of the rules are meant to be broken and the music is played in the moment. One player's ceiling is another player's floor and you can study the form for years and still be nowhere. All this is why we love it so. Jazz is also a highly subjective art form where beauty clearly is in the "ears" of the beholder. There's much debate amongst players about virtually every quality of Jazz but everyone seems to agree that the best way to learn jazz guitar is to listen and study with a master.

In this master class DVD, Berklee professor and saxophonist Ed Tomassi shows you how to build compelling improvisations out of just a few notes. Tomassi's method makes improvising simple. He demonstrates techniques for creating graceful solos from a two-, three- or four-note riff or motive, and shows how to add depth and variety by stringing several motives together. His system is easy to understand and practice; it will help you develop more interesting, cohesive and creative solos within any form or structure.

Saying Something: Jazz Improvisation and Interaction by Ingrid Monson
English | 6 Mar. 1997 | ISBN: 0226534782 | 266 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

This fresh look at the neglected rhythm section in jazz ensembles shows that the improvisational interplay among drums, bass, and piano is just as innovative, complex, and spontaneous as the solo. Ingrid Monson juxtaposes musicians' talk and musical examples to ask how musicians go about "saying something" through music in a way that articulates identity, politics, and race.

Exotic Scales: New Horizons for Jazz Improvisation

Exotic Scales: New Horizons for Jazz Improvisation by Joseph Befumo
English | Mar. 2002 | ISBN: 1931055602 | 200 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

When I first took piano lessons as a child I learned to read music and follow the notation on sheet music. Although I learned scales and was exposed to modes as part of my music instruction, composition and improvisation remained a mystery until my late teens when I took lessons from a jazz pianist during my freshman year in college. Even then, although I could repeat patterns that I copied from the instructor, and even modify those patterns slightly, true improvisation did not come easily, because I did not understand the underlying musical structure.
