5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one to buy!!!, August 30, 2007
If you are interested in learning how to play swing rhythm guitar-buy this book. Freddie Green was the master of swing rhythm guitar and the author took his chair in the Count Basie band when Freddie retired. The author breaks down his style in an accesible way, step-by-step. The audio examples are very helpful and of high quality-no cheesy synth rhythm section. The chord voicings,inversions, and substitutions are explained in detail as well as a chapter on how to expand or reduce the harmony of a tune. I've bought two other swing guitar instrucitonal books before I found this one and it is far better than the others.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that helpful, August 30, 2007
This review is from: Swing Guitar (Paperback)
I normally love the books that Fred Sokolow puts out and have several (his rockabilly and western swing book are especially informative). This book however is just a bunch of tunes that aren't what I think of as standards of swing using six note chord voicings-which isn't accurate to the style of swing guitar.
