Learn Beyond The Book

Are you ready to write your own jazz blues solo? 

Jazz Blues Soloing for Guitar builds your soloing logically, chapter by chapter, and quickly develops a rock solid foundation from which advanced concepts are easily constructed and applied.

Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • Playing cheesy Pentatonic blues licks over I IV V is pretty simple. Learning how to play across the chords and understand the "why" of how it works? That's what this book does in pretty easy to understand language.
  • I wanted to get my solos more jazzy and have some more options to solo (in order not to play only pentatonic scales). The method is well done and after some simple examples and "exercises" you will be surprised to hear how much your solos became richer and jazzier.
  • This book doesn't just show you scales or licks, it shows you how to use the scales to create licks. If you're the kind of guitar player whose blues playing is largely limited to minor pentatonics and the blues scale, then this is the perfect book for getting you moving forward.

    Best of all, Alexander has included backing tracks that target each of the changes in a standard jazz blues, so you can practice making I-IV change, the I-VI change, and the II-V change. He approaches the material in a logical and very practical way that will benefit the readers immediately while also providing a long-term foundation for further developing your playing.
