Reviews - What do customers think about Jazz Standards for Solo Guitar (Guitar Solo)?
Too chord heavy Jul 5, 2009
I appreciate the really rich chords in this book, but the arrangements aren't usable for jamming through standards with other jazz musicians or doing gigs. There is a chord for every melody note. Rarely are there any single note lines in this book. That's my biggest disclaimer. But the benefit of this book is it will expand your chord vocabulary and add really rich chords to it, but not useful arrangments to use playing standards in the real book with people.
no chord diagrams Oct 5, 2008
This series by Robert Yelin did not satisfy me in my quest to finding the best jazz guitar standards book. Although the transcriptions and the chords are very rich and interesting, they are difficult to read; you don't have the diagrams for the chords, and having often several chords per bar it is hard to read the changes: with the book on the stand, you don't know if it's a five, a six or an eight you're seeing! One of the best book I've come across is the Definitive Collection book of Django Reinhardt: you have chord diagrams beneath the title and the solo guitar tab beneath the standard notation. But two things: 1.you don't necessarily find the songs you want; 2. jazz standards have sometimes more interesting chord changes than Minor Swing or Limehouse Blues! Amore interesting collection is the one done by Jack GrasselJazz Guitar Standards: it has two recorded version of the standard (slow and fast) on a cd and a solo transcribed in tabs; with the chord's name you can make your own diagram. If someone finds a jazz guitar standards book with solo in tabs and chord diagrams, please tell me!
