Description
This 196-page music practice, study, and reference guide decodes 16 of the most useful and popular scales and modes, in all 12 keys of "Occidental" music, so it is applicable to any and all genres of "Western" music: Classical, jazz, fusion, blues, rhythm and blues (R&B), soul, funk, reggae, Latin, rap, hip-hop, trip-hop, pop, rock, rock ‘n roll, punk, metal, rockabilly, gospel, country, country/western -- and beyond! Scales and modes are crucial building blocks of music, and your favorite music can be found within these scales and modes. The Jazzhacker format displays an entire fingerboard with position markers (i.e., frets, or the point of correct intonation on fretless instruments) and note names and intervals, along with scale and mode names and formulas, all at a glance. The 193 big, bold, easy-to-read illustrations are perfect for use with all fretted and fretless acoustic or electric guitars and basses. Teachers can build stand-alone courses around Jazzhacker Ebooks or use them to supplement any type of teaching, and players and students of all skill levels can browse and explore at their own pace. The 16 scales and modes decoded in this study guide are (in order): Major (Ionian Mode), Natural Minor (Aeolian Mode), Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Locrian, Harmonic Minor, Melodic (Jazz) Minor, Lydian Flat-Seven, Whole-Tone, Diminished (Whole-Half), Major Pentatonic, Minor Pentatonic, Blues and Blues with Major 3rd. These are among the most useful and popular scales and modes for all genres of music. Please visit Jazzhacker.net for auxiliary study material, PDF ebooks, apps, free downloads and special offers.
About the author
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, I am a technologist and amateur bass player, living (at the time of this writing ;) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. The Jazzhacker project resulted from my efforts to increase my own understanding of scales and modes and (strangely enough…) benefited from design skills cultivated during my years of work as an embedded software engineer. I’m also gaining a bit of expertise in regards to ebook and app design, production, and marketing, so if you are an author or musician developing ideas for ebooks or apps and would like to partner with me and my crew, please contact me via Jazzhacker.net.
