this is Volume One of the new Wes chord method.
A method book for the development of an improvisational style where you learn to play melodic lines in chords.....like Wes did. The cover says: "A guide for developing a chordal vocabulary for improvisation. Written with the styles of Wes Montgomery, Cal Collins, and Barney Kessel in mind.” There are many books which deal with chord forms, comping, and chord-melody playing, but these do not provide a vocabulary for the kind of harmonized soloing that Wes and others have done. To fill that need, Chordal Bebop Lines provides hundreds of actual phrases and patterns in chords. (Much like Jerry Coker's Patterns for jazz, only the lines are in chords, for guitar.) Melodic lines, in chords, are written with a melody line and a fret diagram by each melody note. Poor readers can benefit greatly from this style of writing. Many actual phrases by Wes, Cal Collins, and Barney Kessel. Also some solo excerpts by these players.

Chord forms and chord scales; Glossary of common chord voicings; 28 positions/inversions for each of the following chord qualities: minor 7, major 7, diminished 7, minor 7 b5, dominant 7, dominant 7 b5. This is explored on string sets 1232, 2345, 3456, 1245, 2356, 6432, and 5321.
