Jazz is one of the biggest challenges a violinist can face, with the thought of improvisation likely to strike fear into the heart of even the best classical player. This book demystifies the process, taking you step by step through everything you need to know about playing jazz violin. The work of players such as Stephane Grappelli, Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith and Jean-Luc Ponty is examined in detail, and styles including gypsy jazz, belop, modal and fusion are explored. Topics covered include: analyzing a chord sequence · bowing · chord symbols · double stopping · harmonics · how to construct your own solo · how to swing · pentatonic, bebop and blues scales · vibrato · and more. An accompanying CD with 65 tracks for listening or play-along is also included.
