This collection of jazz solos presents many relatively easy solos based on some of the most common jazz standard chord progressions. Technically, many of these are not overly difficult, but still will posses characteristics that group them within the jazz tradition. Each etude is presented on the accompanying play-along CD which should be used to hear (and copy) articulation, phrasing and other musical elements that cannot be conveyed through musical notation. Each tune has been recorded twice, once with the guitar playing the lead lines and once without. The "rhythm section only" tracks will give students the chance to play with a professional rhythm section and work on issues such as time, groove, and feel.
