Barney Kessel Solo Guitar Arrangement. This very cool book contains the entire Barney Kessel chord solo as heard on YouTube. Check out the YouTube link to decide if this is a solo you would be interested in learning:
Book comes with a CD of the exact performance you are seeing on YouTube.
Cover blurb says: “An aid in the study of chord melody phrasing and harmony….an excellent transcription for serious study of Barney’s moving chordal bebop lines….easier reading is offered with chord diagrams written above the melody line….a very playable chord melody solo for intermediate to advanced performers. Spiral binding and pro-grade score paper. Introduction by the author discusses some of Barney’s favorite chordal devices and an analysis. You can use the YouTube link and CD to follow along with the music in order to capture the tempo and feel that Barney uses. This is a fine solo to use as an audition piece or to expand your solo repertoire. Very impressive sounding solo made easier with the chord diagrams and YouTube link!
This book makes Barney's approach available to all of us in a fast easy way with all the chords written in diagram form.....his chord lines sound complex but watch the moving voices and play them immediately...they are not hard to play for intermediate and advanced jazz guitarists who already possess some knowledge of 4-note inversions and voicings up the neck. Very cool project book.
