Level: Intermediate and Advanced
The vision behind Blazing Solos for Flatpicking Guitar for One Player or More was inspired by the simple beauty of two instruments playing in harmony. In order to harmonize, the lead note and the harmony note need to be in harmonic agreement with one another, as well as with the background chord and the key of the song. Steve found that in most cases, but not always, that thinking in thirds will usually achieve the desired sound. The book also contains a section on how to read tablature plus discography. In notation and tablature. Intermediate level.
In addition to the tunes, Steve includes performance notes, guidelines for reading standard notation and tab plus his take on the harmonization process. A play-along CD with three tracks for each tune (Lead, Harmony, and Lead & Harmony) completes the package.
