Three-note Voicings and Beyond
- Autore Randy Vincent
A complete guide to three-note jazz guitar voicings and related topics for everyone from intermediate newcomers to jazz guitar up to very advanced players. The book develops a unique "dynamic" concept of harmony where three independently moving lines team up to create beautiful harmonies that are valuable for comping, chord melodies and chordal jazz improvisations. Topics include:
Three-note "shell" voicings and special derived comp voicings
Compete triad review including all close and open inversions on all strings
A section on developing "walking" guitar voicings, harmonized bass lines perfect for accompaniment in situations where no bass or keyboard is present
Sections on triad applications such as "slash" chords, Upper Structures, hexatonic triad-pairs and special "hybrid" voicings
Quartal and Secundal voicings perfect for modal comping and soloing
Drop-2 reductions perfect for melody harmonizations
Envious of pianists using lush "Shearing" style block chords? Here's a complete method to develop a realistic simulation on guitar.
Plus much more! Hundreds and hundreds of examples in both music notation and guitar grids.
