Jazz II V I Improvisation Book Review.

This is a very useful book if you are “New’ to jazz improvisation. It covers all of the needs of the beginner as it starts with the classic II V I cadence. It then progresses through the II V I with various altered dominants, different scale choices and chromatic embellishments. There is also a written harmonic explanation for each variation.

The other half of the book goes through modes, scales, chords, arpeggios, triad pairs and all of the essential music theory and explanations for quality jazz practice. This also helps the reader to make sense of the harmonic alterations,scale choices and substitutions commonly found in the world of jazz improvisation and apply them.

The book is available in AMAZON CLICK

Dennis Sandole Guitar Lore/ Scale Lore

In this Vlog/Blog we will take some inspiration from Dennis Sandole’s guitar lore/scale lore concepts.

If we look below we will see an example of a polytonal scale chromatically linking together through different keys.

DENNIS SANDOLE EXAMPLE:

We also see this in common scales too although not to such a degree.

OKAY, SO LET’S MAKE SOME IMPROVISED  MUSIC OUT OF IT ALL!

HEXACHORDS:

Below is a chromatic linking idea counting in groups of 6 notes over an A7 Alt chord.

CHROMATIC RESOLUTIONS ON The OFF BEAT:

This idea relies upon starting the alternate picking by playing off the beat [Missing the first semiquaver]. This creates “Forward Momentum” and puts most of the chromatic notes on the off beat, and at other times creates the illusion of it.
