VOLUME ONE | Educational book for jazz guitar

The first part is based on a guitar adaptation of the harmonic concert of the 9 chord families taught by Dick Grove, whose harmony courses I was lucky enough to attend in the 1985-86 vintage.

As for the modal aspect, I try to highlight the horizontal melodic approach on the single strings often unfairly neglected in the study of the guitar.

The second part of the method concerns the most fascinating aspect of the guitar in my opinion: polyphonic improvisation.
The material collected here comes directly from the school of George Van Eps, great little-known genius of the guitar, guitarist for guitarists, as some have defined him.

It is a collection of polyphonic mechanisms to be developed on all grades of the major and minor scales, the practice of which leads to the development of the independence of the fingers and of the counterpoint abilities; the guitar thus becomes a small orchestra, a small pianforte in our hands and can thus fully express its potential.

I want to clarify that this method is not a "do it yourself" but a teaching aid whose use should be supported by a valid teacher. I greet you and wish you much joy and love in studying and playing this wonderful instrument that is the guitar.
