Breaks down musical feel and expression into learnable skills

Book Two: Melodic Phrasing focuses exclusively on the essential elements that will quickly develop feel, control and expression in your soloing and contains 165 notated audio examples to let you hear each important concept.

Too many teachers say that good musicians are “just feeling it”. This is never an acceptable explanation because it is possible to break down the concept of good feel and phrasing into tangible, teachable skills.

This is not just another lick book! The concept is that we all have the same 12 notes: it is how and when we play them that sets us apart as musicians. When we play the blues, we often only use 5 or 6 notes so phrasing and placement is everything.

This is the book that will teach you to ‘just feel it’.

The Complete Guide to Blues Guitar Book Two: Melodic Phrasing challenges our perception of what blues soloing is. No longer will you be ‘chasing licks’ around the fretboard; struggling because you couldn’t quite execute or remember the line you were reaching for.

In this book you will learn how to use fundamental rhythmic fragments to create and drive your solo forward. By focusing on rhythm and phrasing, and by learning to combine and develop these rhythmic building blocks, the melodies will take care of themselves.

This is a natural, organic approach to developing your guitar soloing where you learn to truly improvise and break away from the prison of ‘lick playing’ or just ‘exploring’ the minor pentatonic scale.

The most essential soloing skills is control of rhythm and placement. Good musicians can easily begin a phrase at any point in the bar. They are not tied to just the major beats and can use this rhythmic freedom to enhance their expression on the guitar. The Complete Guide to Blues Guitar Book Two: Melodic Phrasing goes into this concept in great detail and gives practical exercises that teach you precise placement and freedom to easily and spontaneously play at any point in the bar.

Great soloists are also masters of displacement. This is where we can use the same phrase or lick and begin it at different points in the bar for a completely altered meaning or sound. Using displacement it is easy to recycle and disguise the material you already know; twisting it to have new melodic effect and emotional meaning. In this way we can control and mask our licks, using rhythm to creatively break away from our locked-in patterns and become infinitely more expressive.

The lessons in this book are the difference between average and excellent blues guitarists. If you’ve been stuck trying to memorise licks and exploring pentatonic scales for a while, rhythmic and melodic phrasing is probably what you need to work on the most, and more often than not it simply isn’t taught.

The Complete Guide to Blues Guitar Part Two: Melodic Phrasing breaks down expressive musical feel and teaches it to you step by step. This is where you learn to ‘just feel it’

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great book by Joseph Alexander. 14. April 2014

I have a half dozen of this author's books, and they are uniformly excellent. This book is no exception. Among the things I like most about these books is that they're laid out not like lessons, but more like practice routines. The emphasis is on getting the ideas into your fingers and ears, not just your head. A very refreshing approach. I look forward to the next one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great lesson book by Joseph 20. Februar 2014

First I would like to say that the kindle book does come with audio. It is not linked into the book, but rather you download the audio seperatly from his webpage. The audio files are free. Infact the audio for all his books are free whether you have the book or not. I love every book of Joseph's that I have downloaded (3 now) and this is likely to be my favorite. Great way to learn blues guitar

I have 6 of Joseph's books... because they are good. The associated audio material is high quality. I like how he explains the material and breaks down the exercises. The Call & Response practice in this and his other books have helped my playing tremendously

5.0 von 5 Sternen All you need is a computer (or Kindle), Joseph's books and.... a guitar 14. April 2014
Von Louis Gerber - Veröffentlicht auf

Unfortunately I don't have the time to take lessons with a teacher on a regular basis. Joseph Alexanders books are the answer to this problem. They gave me the kick to restart playing guitar.

I wish I had a tablet computer and his books 15 years ago, when I gave up playing guitar due to lack of time to go to lessons. Now I do my exercises around midnight, which is better for blue notes anyway... ;-)
