Additional Information

Joe Diorio is an accomplished guitarist and composer as well as a respected music educator. In this book he combines his skills to present innovative intervallic designs for the guitar. Written in standard notation and tab, these linear, often 12-tone flavored studies reflect Diorio's jazz roots and compositional mastery. Due to the harmonic ambiguity of these lines, the author recommends an experimental approach in applying these examples in various melodic and harmonic settings. The companion stereo CD features Diorio's performance of each of the 96 studies in the book.

I first encountered Diorio's playing through his book 'Fusion' in about 1980 or so. At the time there was no demonstration recording available to show you how this innovative man's music should sound. When you got it right it sounded beautiful.

The thing I like about Diorio's music books is that they can be incredibly technical, and yet still a thing of beauty.
Joe uses a lot of close intervals in this book and the guitar doesn't lend itself well to close interval playing. It often means difficult stretches and across the strings picking. Because of the difficulty involved this is a widely neglected area of guitar single note soloing. Plenty of people play close chords but across the strings picking is almost taboo. Even in the recordings of the greats examples are infrequent.

Amazon has a preview option on this book and it would be wise to have a look; some of the exercises are very difficult.
That said, we get better by accepting greater and greater... Read more
