Explores all the main components necessary for crafting well-balanced rhythmic and melodic phrases.

Amazing Phrasing Guitar explains how phrases are put together to form cohesive guitar 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 5 main sections of guitar solo lessons: 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 they pertain to melodic soloing. Solo Structure brings together all the topics discussed in the book to create the big picture and get you well on your way to strong guitar solos. The companion CD contains 89 demos for listening and most tracks feature full-band backing.
