"They say that you can't teach it .... and maybe your can't? - But I am going to have a jolly good try. I think what they mean, is that you can't teach 'SOUL' - that has to be obtained by sheer enthusiasm! For if you are dedicated, and work steadily at your playing, then you will become confident, relaxed, and the natural feeling (that is, SOUL) will be free to simply flow out from you. In this book, I will teach you the basic ingredients of Jazz Improvisation, but the rest is down to you. Have fun, and now .... let's get jazzing...."

Peter guides you through using the blues scale, jazz timing (the 'Rinky-Tinky Swing'), the Twelve-Bar Blues (giving you lots of melody, chord and bass pattern ideas), runs and passing notes, syncopation, jazz endings, boogie-woogie style, big band intros, and so much more. It concludes with a great arrangement of 'When The Saints Go Swinging In'.

This 20 page book is clearly written in understandable English. The music is in easy to read, clear, good-sized print. It really will help you to 'play better'!
