A thorough workout in the incredibly versatile 12-bar form known as “the blues.” Three kinds of blues in twelve keys plus eight additional blues thrown in just for fun. This volume is designed “for grown-ups” and makes the Aebersold blues volumes look like kindergarten stuff. Guaranteed to challenge and educate while providing the opportunity to have a great time playin’ the blues.
Here is the breakdown of the 44 different (some are way different) original bebop/jazz blues:
• Major Blues in all 12 keys
• Minor Blues in all 12 keys
• Triple Meter Blues in all 12 keys
• Eight “Extra” Blues
This book will give you a workout unlike any you’ve ever seen! Each two-page spread contains one blues in four transpositions: C treble, C bass, B♭ and E♭. There are also chordal and melodic points of interest throughout.
Your book comes with play-along files, enough so you can make 8 play-along CDs (two tempos per blues, choice of melody present or no melody present—over 9½ hours of play-along tracks) plus a complete set of MIDI files to use with Band-In-A-Box or other sequencing programs (for instance, some versions of Windows Media Player allow you to do these at any tempo and Band-In-A-Box lets you do them at any tempo and in any key).
This workout is guaranteed to keep you learning and improving for a long, long time! And, this is probably the biggest complete combo book you can find anywhere for this small of a price.
