Description :

This book offers a comprehensive workshop in blues violin and specifically addresses improvisation techniques through exercises and ear training studies that relate to the various licks and scales. Original tunes by the author address various technical challenges, and old blues standards are included to build an authentic blues repertoire. The book next touches on the influence of the blues on swing, bluegrass, Cajun and Gypsy styles while teaching improvisational techniques in each. We next pay tribute to the great Blues violinists of the past and present with bios and some photos. Finally, ways to develop and vary breaks are explored. The text touches on many aspects of violin techniques as it relates to the blues and has an easygoing and at times, humorous appeal. The book begins at a moderate beginning level but quickly moves to intermediate material; toward the end, we get into fairly advanced territory. Both violinists who have been playing a couple of years and serious classical players can benefit from Getting Into Blues Violin.
