The goal of this book is to provide a concept for guitarists that will help them go quickly to the core of the harmonies that must be dealt with in order to improvise over chord changes. Joe Negri shows how you can assimilate harmonies and quickly determine a common denominator that you instantly visualize on the fingerboard. From this `cell' harmony you will be able to build or create single-note melodic lines.
Joe Negri has taken the fundamentals of music theory and made them applicable and relevant to the improvising guitarist. One of this book's secrets is the use of basic triadic shapes as an organizational tool to demystify improvisation. This keep it simple approach allows improvisers to hear and unveil melodic lines that are right under their fingers within simple triadic shapes.
These studies are packed with the basic information the student needs in order to use the chord tones as melodic focal points. Written in notation and tablature.
