Beau returns with a collection of musical examples that demonstrate new ways to take advantage of the fretboard.
With influences that draw from contemporary hip-hop, jazz, gospel and R&B, Beau's improvisations are unique and seamlessly work in the context of a backbeat, a loop pedal, or as a solo instrument. The ideas are harmonically, rhythmically and technically complex.
Like Volumes 1 & 2, each fully notated example gives you ability to loop and slow down any section you like. Each improvisation starts with a full-speed version of the performance, followed by a repeated take at a slow, note-by-note speed. The ability to toggle back and forth between the two versions is particularly useful when learning to recreate these sounds. While the slowed-down version makes the technical obstacles easier to tackle, the full-speed performance emphasizes musicality by demonstrating how to join the technical at tempo.
Beau's style is his own, and the ideas here go well beyond your average music-store guitar lesson.
