Guitar arrangements transcribed by the artists themselves, in standard notation and tab. Each edition includes a masterclass-style CD in which the artist walks you through the key aspects and techniques for each arrangement. Twenty-five beautiful Celtic melodies masterfully arranged for solo guitar, as performed by Jim Tozier on his Celtic Guitar CD (Solid Air Records). Each amazingly accessible, yet truly beautiful arrangement was transcribed by Jim Tozier himself. The included full performance CD is so stunning that it alone is worth the price. Jim has been called one of most eloquent Celtic guitarists in the world (Guitarnation.com), and his treatment of these traditional Irish and Scottish tunes is tasteful and true. This collection is comprised of time-honored favorites and lesser-known Celtic gems, which makes it an essential resource for players of all levels. A CD with full-length recordings and performance notes is included. Songs are arranged in DADGAD, CGDGAD, and CGCGCD tunings.

DescriptionDo you want to develop greater fingerboard familiarity and improvisational fluency, and learn a lot of licks at the same time? Then, regardless of your level, this book is for you. The goal of this book is to demonstrate how fingerings can be applied in a realistic jazz setting, and to help players get a better handle on negotiating the guitar´s fingerboard and improvisation in general, while learning a hip solo over a cool background. This book has a number of dynamic features, including... - A methodical, position by position look at improvisation. - A focus on phrasing. - Cool, repetitious grooves that give the player a chance to develop skills without the added complication of having to change to a new scale or key center. - Swinging solos that cover the range of a given fingering or position. - Formulas for the major modes and a variety of other scales. Each solo contains a number of hip phrases, licks, and patterns that take advantage of the related scale position and fingering. In addition to developing fingerboard familiarity and improvisational skills, the solos also provide good sight-reading material.
