Inside Improvisation Series Volume 6

Learning a language requires listening on many levels. To start, the book focuses on the prerequisites of chord scales, approach notes to chord tones & target notes, scale motives & sequences, & lines.

Part 2 qualifies improvisational techniques into 3 areas -- melodic, harmonic & sonic; it is designed as a menu of soloing devices from which one selects a personal course of study. 100+ specific devices are discussed & conceptualized, giving the improviser more depth of expression & a greater well from which to draw ideas. Among the numerous topics presented are: Guide Tones · Voice Leading · Chord Substitutions · 3 Tonic System for Composition · Tritonics · Hexatonics · Tonal Expansions · Whole Tone Playing · Augmented Symmetric Scales · Double Diminished Scales · Limited Range & Large Range Playing · Shapes · Blues Melodies · Accents · Comping as a Soloing Device · Common Tones · Articulations · etc. The CD has 12 standard chord progressions.
