All musicians need to thoroughly learn their scales, chords, intervals and various melodic patterns in order to become complete musicians. The question has always been how to approach this universal task. Guitar legend Barry Finnerty (Miles, The Crusaders, Brecker Bros., etc.) provides in this book a rigorous practice regime that will set you well on the road to complete mastery of whatever instrument you play. Endorsed by Randy Brecker, Mark Levine, Dave Liebman, etc. The audio portion of this book is available for free download at http://www.shermusic.com/new/downloads.shtml.
As a book, a great source of insightful information.
I was disappointed that once I downloaded the book to find out that there is a CD that is supposed to come with it. I am unable to download the accompanying CD anywhere on iTunes.
I am quite disheartened at that. If it's supposed to come with a CD, iTunes should provide a way to support that. It's a no brainer.
Very helpful for me as a beginning jazz trombonist, but it is too bad that the cd that follows the paper version is not included. It would be nice with a bundled iTunes download or something like that.
But the book itself seems like a very good investment!
