One review on Andrew York – Jazz Guitar for Classical Cats: Improvisation

  1. Good quality scan and tracks. The book itself is unique since the exercises and content focus on the open position and major and minor modes first so it’s far more accessible for classical guitars than most jazz and improvisation books.

    However, it’s the 3rd book in the series following Harmony and Chord/Melody where the necessary theory, jazz chart reading and jazz chord-voicing is taught first and since a fingerpicked nylon string has vastly different chord-voicing fingerings than electric jazz guitars due to different muting and strumming mechanics… Well, you’re probably going to need to look up the previous books in the series even if you have jazz background or maybe Latin guitar background, especially Brazilian and new flamenco, where the voicing fingerins and progressions are also taught for the nylon string.

    Anyhow, good book but should really get the whole series.
