For anyone who's ever spent time in the jazz scene in Boston, you've undoubtably seen or perhaps even met Mick. He's a funny, offbeat guy and an incredible guitar player. His teaching style is as humorous as it is cerebral, and this book is an extension of that philosophy.
Some of the topics covered are playing on single or adjacent strings, intervals, open playing, position playing, triads, 7th chords, modes and chord scales, pentatonics, triads over bass notes. Although many of these topics are familiar ones, Mick covers them in a unique way, and those who don't have a firm grasp of the basic scales and chords used in jazz harmony might not get the most out of this book. A lot of it is Mick presenting ideas and exercises that might take you the rest of your life to master. The last part of the book is Mick's observations about playing, which are incredibly valuable.
Best line in the book: "One of the few things that's worth taking seriously is humor."
