Wes Montgomery took jazz guitar to a new level when he came to the public'sattention in the late 1950's. Known for his fluid lines and his big jazz guitar sound, Wes influenced thousands of guitarists in the styles of jazz, blues, and rock. This book will present some of the soloing techniques that Wes used as well has present many melodic ideas (lines) similar to the way he played over the chord progression in many jazz standards. Because the major and minor ii-V-Iprogression are the most widely used chord progression in jazz standards, the lines in this text will work over these progressions. The accompanying audio contains many play-along tracks (vamps of one chord and vamps around the circle of fourths) that the student should use to practice the material in one key and then master it in all twelve keys. By learning the techniques used by Wes Montgomery, guitarists will add to their own improvising arsenal. As improvisingmusicians add to their collection of musical ideas, their ability to express themselves completely increases. Have fun studying these ideas and applyingthem in improvised solos. Includes access to online audio.
