Jazz Harmony on the Guitar by Stan Smith

Just released is my book title “Jazz Harmony on the Guitar,” Published by Houston Publishing, Inc. and exclusively distributed by Hal Leonard Corporation. This instruction book is a linear structural approach to Jazz Harmony on the guitar and includes a CD.

Here is what Guitarist Gene Bertoncini has to say about this book.

"Everything that Stan Smith has systematically laid out for the student in this book is critical to his overall growth as the complete guitarist,

 The fingerboard, at best, is a never-ending mystery, and chord progressions and the ear training gained from their study are treated here in such a way as to provide the best kind of foundation for later growth harmonically, melodically and in the most important area for the working guitarist: song learning.

So much can be said about the choice of notes in constructing chords. In this book, the player learns the basis for constructing chord particles with just the colors necessary to have the most impact in either a comping, soloing, or arranging situation.

I thank Stan for changing the fingerboard from a mystery to a creative wonder and a secure place to begin the honest development for any guitarist."
