Jazz Warm-Ups for Jazz Guitar Book - Mel
contains 30 jazz guitar warm-ups that are intended to improve
any guitarists right and left hand dexterity. They are
challenging, jazz-oriented exercises in concept and in
execution and primarily most suitable for players at
intermediate to advanced levels. I use these studies
throughout my teaching--in university and secondary school
jazz classes and in private lessons.
Some of these studies
offer suggestions, including left hand fingering, on how to
play them though you are encouraged to experiment. Some
are in 4/4 time but some are in odd meters like 6/4 and 10/4
to exploit a given position on the guitar.
Most of the studies
involve a musical premise; however, some are based on a
geometric shape. Remember too that correct practice and
repetition will help assure mastery of the etudes and their
application in your playing.
