New Book From Shawn Persinger
Shawn Persinger who has recorded Desire For A Straight Line on the Innova label, has now a book, Bebop Jazz Guitar: Head Transcriptions and Full Backing Tracks for 12 Classics (Guitar Book), (Hal Leonard Corporation 24 pgs.[October 1, 2010]).
Here is the description at Amazon: “Have you ever wanted to play some great jazz tunes, but found it difficult to locate the best fingerings for guitar? This book/CD pack will help you play 12 terrific bebop standards in their definitive keys, with tablature and play-along tracks! Major scale patterns and chord diagrams are also included for reference and study. Songs: Anthropology * Be-Bop * Boplicity (Be Bop Lives) * Conception * Confirmation * Dance of the Infidels * Donna Lee * Groovin’ High * Half Nelson * Shawnuff * Tempus Fugit * Well You Needn’t.”
I tried to find something on Shawn’s site that he might have said about the book. But, Shawn is very bsuy6 touring, so, I guess when he slows down or gets snowed in he will put something on his site.
