What You Will Get From this Book

Tools for building your skills so that you are no longer locked into the
written note, memorized patterns, or the "right" scales.

  • AN ASSESSMENT OF YOUR EAR

    Too few musicians have a clear understanding of their basic musical skills. You'll play through some fun patterns that will help you assess your starting point, answering the question, how good is your ear today?

  • COOL PLAY-ALONG TRACKS

    The heart of this book is the cool tracks that accompany the exercises, playing models, and improvisation challenges. If you're not having fun, your brain won't absorb the learning, so these tracks make your time with the book engaging and rewarding.

  • UNIQUE EAR-BUILDING EXERCISES

    You will train yourself to anticipate the harmony so that you imagined melodies will flow through your instrument. This book is all about connecting your ear to your instrument and the foundation of that method lives in these fun exercises.

  • LEARN THE CIRCLE OF FIFTHS

    You'll learn how the circle is much more than a musical concept. It is a practical guide for improvisation and understanding exactly why certain chord progressions are harder than others. You'll hear how to use the circle to improve your playing.
