The Guitar Scales Vol. 1 is a complete guide to the scales that beginning and intermediate guitarists need for practicing and soloing. Each chapter covers a specific approach to these basic scales, including examples, exercises and studies. Music scores including fingerings, tablatures and grid diagrams, along with logical, step-by-step explanations allow the student to build their own understanding as well as technical and improvising skills. The CD includes all music material of the book. Each example, exercise and study is recorded. In addition, eight rhythm section tracks provide a set of accompaniments for practical applications of each scale and its appropriate improvisational exercise.
