More than a method or exercise book, this guide challenges jazz guitarists to increase originality in their thinking and playing. Master player Larry Coryell takes readers deep inside the music to make connections between ideas and the guitar fretboard, helping them unlock their own creativity. This book/CD set builds logically from basic ideas to more advanced techniques, which Coryell explains in fine detail. He highlights musical ways to understand complex jazz concepts and presents his unique approach to improvisation by providing exciting new ways to play scales, intervals, arpeggios, melody and chords. Emphasizing group interaction and solos that sizzle, Coryell taps his decades of experience as a performer to offer insights into inventive, powerful ensemble playing. This book should open the door to a better understanding in our quest for advanced guitar playing. - Al DiMeola
