Ever wondered how guitarists like Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall find such full, luscious voicings for their chord melody playing? Much of that sound is based on the "Drop 2" principle of chord voicings. This book by veteran guitarist Randy Vincent explains exactly how you can get that same sound, too. Contains sections covering: all the basic principals of drop 2 melody harmonization including passing tones and extension tones as well as basic chord tones; practical, guitar-friendly methods for creating hip, modern sounds by "tweaking" the basic drop 2 voicings; clear methods for soloing and comping in drop 2, including melodic enclosures, special guitar-oriented chromatic effects, and a system of modal drop 2 harmony; and an organized practice routine, including fingerboard diagrams as well as standard notation, to fully develop all the concepts mentioned above in a hands-on approach, with a minimum of theory. Online audio is included with the book.
