Best friend, 08.01.2019
I am an amateur advanced guitar player and bought the book to have a general understanding of the basics of jazz music theory. The book has a very thorough, balanced and structured approach. With a bit of patience and experience everyone can complete the course offered by the book.

Perusteellinen kirja.
Joijeg, 15.06.2016
Kirjassa on paljon matskua. Opittavaa on pitkäksi aikaa. Väittäisin että tämä kirja soveltuu parhaiten soittajalle joka on soittanut + pari vuotta.

Hyvä huomioida että melkein kaikki harjoitukset ovat suunniteltu plektran käyttäjiä ajatellen.

Mutta itse soitan melkein kaiken aikaa ilman plekua, koska meilekin kaikki soinnut tässä kirjassa ovat "nelikielisiä" joten tämä kirja sopii myös fingerstyle kitaristeile.

Mukaan tuleva cd on toki todella hyvä lisä.

Hal Leonard Jazz Guitar Handbook
Werner8612, 02.04.2014
Das vorliegende Buch stellt ein sehr umfangreiches Werk für moderne Jazzgitarristen dar. Es ist sicher geeignet für ambitionierte Amateure mit semi-professionellem Anspruch. Beiliegende CD ist außerordentlich umfänglich und hilfreich. Die annähernd 100 Hörbeispiele ergänzen das Buch hervorragend. Das Buch deckt alles Wissenswerte über die moderne Jazzgitarre bis zu mittleren und teilweise höheren Schwierigkeitsgraden in den wesentlichen Stilrichtungen ab.

Dass es in englischer Sprache vorliegt, halte ich für einen Vorteil. Damit ist die gängige Terminologie klar. Behandelt werden: Skalen, deren Entstehung und Anwendung im Akkordkontext. Akkorde und deren mögliche Substitutionen zusammen mit gängigen Kadenzen im Jazz, eingebettet in eine große Zahl von Beispielen auf besagter CD. Mit seiner gelungenen Einleitung über die Historie der Jazzgitarristen und die Entstehung der Jazzgitarre ist dem Autor ein wirklich gutes Buch zu einem vernünftigen Preis gelungen. Aufmachung, Qualität, visuelle und didaktische Gestaltung des Buchs genügen hohen Ansprüchen.

Jazz!
Samuli123, 12.01.2015
Todella hyvä jazz musiikin alottavalle kitaristille. Kirjassa on myös blues musiikista tykkääville hyviä harjoituksia. Vasta-alkajille kirja on tosin turhan haastava ja mikäli teorian alkeet eivät ole hallussa pitää hieman niitäkin opiskella ensin. Loppujen lopuksi ainaki vuoden kitaraa soittaneelle hyvä opus etenemiseen!
