Visions: A Personal Tribute to Lenny Breau
Guitarist Stephen D. Anderson was a close personal musical friend of late jazz fingerstyle guitarist Lenny Breau, and his insight into Breau’s style is the result of firsthand exposure to his music. Virtually every aspect of Breau’s playing is analyzed and and well-presented in this book: two-note comping, harmonics, quartal harmony, three-against-two rhythms, and more. The examples that illustrate these techniques are challenging but at the same time concise and practical. The book also includes an informative and moving interview with Anderson by Ron Cid. Intermediate/advanced guitarists with a basic grasp of jazz theory will benefit most from this in-depth exploration of Breau’s singular musical vision.
