  • Hybrid Picking Lines and Licks by Gustavo Assis-Brasil

    $19.95

    Guitarist, composer, recording artist, educator, and author Gustavo Assis-Brasil presents his third book about hybrid-picking technique. Recommended for intermediate to advanced guitarists, Hybrid Picking Lines & Licks is a collection of 284 modern phrases exclusively written for the pick and fingers combined.

    Chapters include: Triads, Arpeggios, Pentatonics, Scales and Modes, Atonal, Intervallic, and Octave Displacement Lines and Licks.

    “Welcome to a very splendid new book on hybrid picking! Essentially this is the “Swiss army knife” approach to picking technique, combining the advantages of fingerstyle and “regular” picking to facilitate all sorts of crazy stuff (wide interval leaps, open chord voicings, polyphony, you name it…) which would otherwise be unplayable. Hybrid Picking Lines & Licks For Guitar offers an abundance of new ideas for your delectation… Perhaps the coolest thing about the examples in here is that they’re not just technical exercises: the actual notes are interesting, too, so your fretting hand and musical ear are just as likely to benefit as your hybrid picking technique itself. I’m confident that any guitar player, regardless of his/her style and technique, will find something challenging and inspiring in the following pages. Nice one, Gustavo!” – Guthrie Govan

    “Since working out of Gustavo Assis-Brasil’s Hybrid Picking books I’ve definitely been graced with new and creative approaches to the guitar. I’ve always been a fan of wide intervallic lines, as well as voice leading, and hybrid picking seems to be the perfect technique encompassing both those things and more. I’ve literally been inspired to write new music directly after spending a little time with his books daily. Getting the Lines & Licks book pushed things even further as far as creative lines are concerned. Having use of my other fingers while still holding the pick is an ingenious way to approach the guitar!” – Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders)

  • Jazz Guitar Soloing: The Cellular Approach by Randy Vincent

    $24.00

    Learn how to solo like the masters!
    The ultimate practice book for serious jazz guitarists!

    The Cellular Approach is a practical method for developing the ability to create convincing jazz solos in a wide variety of playing situations.

    It takes actual jazz lines recorded by master players and then slices them up into small “cells” that can be re-combined into longer lines to fit almost any harmonic situation.

    This enables the player to improvise his or her own lines that sound just as interesting and melodic as the masters without resorting to simply copying others. Fingerings and string choices are often given too, making it particularly valuable to guitarists who want to actually master their instrument.

    Some of the harmonic situations dealt with include:

    • Fast-moving cycles such as the bridge of “Jordu.”
    • Chromatic II-V changes.
    • Turnarounds, including many that are useful for dealing with “rhythm changes.”
    • Jimmy Heath’s “C.T.A.” changes.
    • John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” changes.
    • In addition, slower moving II-Vs are covered, using various strategies for stringing together the short cells into long flowing lines.
    • 189 pages!

    There is a complete discussion of how to break out of diatonic-derived lines by using the cellular approach to create “side-slipping” and other intervallic lines — creating ultra-hip solo phrases in the style of modern masters such as Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, and Herbie Hancock.

    Finally, the cell concept gets transcended as twelve-tone rows in the style of Mike Stern and others are explored, as well as lines derived from “23rd chords” for adventurous players that are interested in paving a way into the future.
