This is another fantastic book in the Fundamental-Changes series. It follows the same "winning" formula of breaking down II-V-I progressions in a very logical/practical way to facilitate internalizing the information so it can be applied to real life playing situations.. After you have worked thorough the examples, you are going to be playing beautiful and challenging lines... More importantly, you will have a deep understanding of the jazz vocabulary required to build your own lines... The audio examples and backing tracks really make the process allot of fun!

I personally own 100's of jazz guitar method books.. The titles from Joseph Alexander are always on the top of the stack!

This is the follow up and companion of Fundamental Changes in Jazz Guitar,by the same author.This time it covers ii-V-i progression in minor,a topic rarely covered in depth and thoroughly,at least in guitar oriented books.All the different approaches that you can pick one by one from other sources(i.e.harmonic minor scale,or minor 3rd trick),are here explained and put in context in the most gradual,clear and easy to understand format.Also in this book,to avoid confusion,only one fingering is used to explain and absorb-conceptually and aurally- the various musical topics,so the task to apply them to the other four is simplified.A fine work,check it out.

I would highly recommend this product. This book is a great view of what it takes to properly improvise through a Minor II-V-I progression. Joseph Alexander pushes you through new concepts and by using old concepts and combining them in great ways for soloing. Using arpeggios and bebop scales are the building blocks to a modern sound and Joseph really knows his stuff. I've been playing guitar professionally for twenty years and I find this book very refreshing and a great additional to my arsenal of chops. Don't hesitate, just get the book!

This is one of the several books that I have purchased from the Fundamental Changes series by Mr Alexander. Although I had started studying some of the other books, this particular book captivated me. The book gets straight to business, discussing arpeggios while focusing only on minimal theory necessary to follow the concept of the progression. Mr. Alexander's style is quite informative but informal and easy to follow for beginners. Learning starts early and is well paced throughout the book. The exercises in the book are selected so that the reader gradually builds the knowledge and confidence to not only work through them but also to learn how to improvise. After going through just the first 15 pages of the book, I was improvising minor ii V i solos on a backtrack that I recorded on my Boss loop station. So rewarding! The explanation on how to use chromatic fills to connect arpeggios is very useful. The pace picks up considerably from there where more advanced scales are considered. I haven't finished the book yet, but I am sure that in addition to the early rewards there are many more to come along the journey to master minor ii V i Jazz soloing. Highly recommended!

Brilliant! Just like the previous one "Fundamental Changes in Jazz Guitar", this one is also very practical.
What make this author's books different from others is their practicality.
It's a real step-by-step method, each chapter is built on the previous one, one thing at a time.
Most of the books just tell you what to play, but not how to play, or even if they tell you how or give you some practice tips,
they won't give you a step by step guideline to walk you through the process (which I think is very important for self-taught guitarists),
but this one (and the previous one) is the exception!

The book is very well organized and always with the student in mind. The rate of information is perfect for the student. The examples, both visual and auditory are extremely helpful. After all the information is covered, additional comments are given about why this approach rather than that form might work better in this situation. Preferences are stated and why, but never as the only way. Mr Alexander's books are my reference library, which I consult on a regular basis.

I would all of Jason Alexander's books 5 stars. They are brilliantly organized into bit size learning's. I have been able to easily learn, practice and play with the audio examples.

My iTunes is not half full with all of his book's audio.

As I stated in my review of the first in this series, "Fundamental Changes in Jazz Guitar" Mr. Alexander knows his subject very well and he is an outstanding teacher. My background is in Education and Training so I know a good teacher when I see one. This book is the equal to the first in every way. Clear, concise, and full of valuable (and most important) useful information.

It's both a "method" book and a "reference" book making it valuable to both beginners as well as more experienced Jazz players who will pick up a trick or two. I would even go so far as to say it is of value to those who play instruments other than guitar from a purely theoretical point of view.

I could go on and on but I will sum up by saying this book is of high quality (content, presentation, approach) and unlike many books that are larger but mostly full of useless content. Every bit of this book is useful and valuable.

Get this book and look into all the others Mr. Alexander has produced!
