After having answered these complex questions many times, I decided to write some material on this subject. I have presented here two types of solos over the same harmonic progression. The first solo in each set is designed in the Be-Bop style and will give you insight into the technique of developing continuity in our compositions improvised solos over a given set of chordchanges.
These solos will help you better understand ideas that are used in the style of Be-Bop and how to connect one idea to another melodically, by way of chromatic passages, scales, and chord arpeggios. I have written these solos so that you may extract segments orindividual melodic statements from these progressions and use them in creating your own solos.
The second solo in each set will demonstrate the way in which free-style playing isapproached. Therefore, the material in this book is designed to widen your improvising sense in two directions. Thesecond type of solo is also constructed so that individual ideas may be extracted and used elsewhere. I have added chord accompaniment for each progression. The solos will sound far riche r when played over these or similar chords than if they are heard without any harmonic support at all.
Also, these accompaniments will widen and enrich your chord vocabularyand give you insight into melodic and harmonic direction. Some of the solos and chords may seem awkward at first and the wide intervals maypresent a picking problem, but by overcoming these obstacles, your technique will be enhanced and your ability to flow in all directions will be strengthened.
May the melodic sense that is in all people find greater expression because of this book. He also played and toured with Stan Getz.
