Amazing Phrasing - Guitar by : Tom Kolb
This book with online audio explores all the main components necessary for crafting well-balanced rhythmic and melodic phrases. It also explains how these phrases are put together to form cohesive solos. Many styles are covered - rock; blues; jazz; fusion; country; Latin; funk and more - and all of the concepts are backed up with musical examples. The 50 ideas are divided into five main sections: The Basics - covers fundamental but all too often forgotten techniques; such as slurs and vibrato; that can breathe new life into your phrases; Melodic Concepts - explores various aspects of melodic phrasing; such as motifs; chromaticism and sequences; Harmonic Embellishments - discusses the melodic potential of harmonic intervals (dyads); chords and chord partials; Rhythmic Concepts - explores various aspects of rhythmic phrasing; such as accents; free-time phrasing and metric modulation; and how it pertains to melodic soloing; Solo Structure - all of the topics discussed in the book come together to help form the big picture. The companion audio contains 89 demos for listening; and most tracks feature full-band backing. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+; a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch; set loop points; change keys; and pan left or right. Also available for keyboard; tenor saxophone and trumpet.
