We can work with this collection in many different ways. Each solo offers the opportunity to perfect deciphering, technique, phrasing, articulation and general style.
In addition, the melodies of solos contain an abundance of vocabulary peculiar to the language of jazz and blues.
Once we have learned and played on the accompaniment of the CD, we can use them as models for his personal improvisations.
In the work of personal improvisation, it can be particularly useful to memorize a whole solo or even just one or two sentences.
As soon as you have optimized a solo with the help of the play-along CD, you have to improvise by incorporating elements from the solos.
Also try to record your own solos and record them to hear how they sound.
It is step by step that this volume rubs the free game in jazz, rock and pop. Each chapter is based on an easy piece of music that can be played together with the Play-Along CD.
There are also short explanations, what notes sound good in improvisation, and why. Sample solos by experienced musicians as well as chords and accompaniment rhythms (with tablatures or bass lines) serve as examples for your own essays.
This learning can also be used in the context of ensemble music as part of general education or music school (from two years of instrumental lessons).
