Description

This volume is a step-by-step approach to improvisation in jazz, rock and pop music. Based on an easy music which can be practised together with a band on the play-along CD, each chapter comes with brief explanations as to which notes sound best when improvising and why. Solos by experienced musicians serve as examples for the player's own attempts at improvisation.The textbook can also be used by a band at schools or music schools (for pupils with at least 2 years of instrumental lessons).
