Melodias baseadas nas tríades e extensões melódicas soam mais naturais do que aquelas baseadas em escalas.

Você vai aprender a criar solos no estilo dos mais famosos guitarristas de Jazz, como: Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, e Pat Martino.
Improvise better solos by using triads and melodic extensions. Melodies based on triads and melodic extensions sound more natural and musical than ones developed exclusively from scales. Triads—the fundamental building blocks of harmony—are a simple and effective remedy for scale dependency in improvisation. Explore the potential of triads and their melodic extensions, and learn to connect them using guide tones. You'll learn to create solo phrases in the styles of some of the world's finest jazz guitarists—Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and Pat Martino.

"Garrison Fewell has long been a hero to the jazz community. Read this book and you will find out why."
—Jim Hall, Acclaimed Jazz Guitarist, Composer, Arranger
"Garrison Fewell presents and demystifies many of the essential elements and techniques of jazz guitar, with useful and easily applied examples. He gets the player's hands, ears, and mind all involved. I wish this book had been around thirty years ago!"
—Howard Alden, Jazz Guitarist
"This book is a really well-thought-out guide to improvisation. I wish I'd had a book like this when I was a student."
—George Cables, Pianist/Composer
"G.F.'s book is a profound learning tool! I refer to Garrison as 'G.F.' here because of this very clear, but so simple approach to using a 'G' minor triad with its natural connection to 'F' major in an earlier chapter. From this point in the book, you can build on this same approach by following this rule in all other keys and end up with 'great ears' and a wealth of knowledge."
—Billy Harper, Jazz Saxophonist/Composer
"Garrison Fewell's concept of using guide tones and intervals in improvisation instead of 'running scales' is very important. Recommended for all who want to master 'inside' as well as 'outside' playing."
—John Tchicai, Author of Advice to Improvisers, Ed. Wilhelm Hansen
