This long awaited 104 page book is THE defining treatise on the diminished scale. It explains everything you need to know about this versatile scale and how/where to use it in your solos.

Includes 12 exercises, 6 common patterns, and 4 classic diminished licks over ii/V7/I tracks aligned to Jamey's popular Vol. 3 play-a-long (sold separately). Also included are 12 etudes, many based on standards, that demonstrate how and where to place diminished scale ideas in the changes.
