Lots of guitar players know several scales, but how many really know what to do with them? With Guitarist's Guide to Scales Over Chords, you'll learn how to apply the most commonly used scales in a musical manner. This book examines how scales and chords are closely linked and how this relationship is key to crafting memorable, intelligent solos. If you've been stuck in a pentatonic rut, or you feel that you're constantly relying on the same old patterns, this is the book for you] The book covers 14 scales in detail, and the audio features 99 tracks, including 15 backing track progressions for practice.
Audio Examples Not Visible
Prior to buying this electronic version, I already owned the hard copy. I want to stress that this is a great book. My complaint is with the iBooks version. I thought it would be worth a second purchase to have all the audio clips embedded on the pages and not have to fumble with CD's. In theory this should work. All the audio clips simply appear as a thin gray line. You can tell it was SUPPOSED to be a visible play bar for each example, but some formatting bug is causing them to not appear right. If you tap over and over, sometimes you can hit it just right and get it to play but it is unreliable at best. I own multiple ebooks from Hal Leonard that work like a charm. I'm currently on an iPad Air first version with current iOS software and iBooks updates applied. Hopefully someone from the production team will see this and update/patch accordingly.
