NTRODUCTIONI would start by saying that this book and accompanying CD are not intended asan in depth analysis of jazz guitar playing. Rather they offer the rudimentaries of some of the many facets of the jazz guitar such as technique, improvisation andaccompaniment. The reason for this is to assist busy people, who may have littleformal musical training, and who want to make quick progress without wadingthrough lengthy and detailed books.The purpose of this book is to help others. Since I had no formal musical trainingmyself and started playing quite late in life, I thought the hurdles faced by myself and how I subsequently overcame them may be useful to others. However, thisbook is not meant as a substitute for a good teacher, as that would be a bold claim.Neither is it meant to do away with any other educational material. Its main thrustis to provide an easy to follow method for playing, with emphasis on fun.The guitar is a complex instrument and has many roles in jazz, so I have dividedthe book into these distinct aspects of playing. There is a logical progression tothe chapters, but for the more advanced student, the book can be dipped intoaccording to needs and interests. For the absolute beginner I recommend goingthrough chapters one and two. For those wanting to move straight onto impro-vising move on to chapter 3. For those with only an interest in accompaniment,chapter 5 offers many useful devices.Above all else, remember to have fun.
