Jazz guitar is mysterious and intimidating for most players - so many chords, changes, feels and then the capper; you have to improvise over all of it. There's really no shortcut for developing jazz chops, but there is an underlying structure and if you understand that structure, the chops will quickly follow. Jazz Anatomy decodes the structure of jazz guitar revealing a remarkably clear approach for comping, melodic development and improvisation. Your professor of Jazz Anatomy is Mimi Fox - phenom player, brilliant educator and top recording artist. Just Jazz Guitar hails her playing as "jazz guitar at its best" and she chairs the guitar department at the Jazz School in Berkeley. In short, Fox has all the chops.

Let's get two things straight right off the bat; don't use modes to play bebop (see the Bebop Improv Survival Guide if that's your calling); and secondly, you won't find any Greek references in Fareed's teachings. "When's the last time you saw or heard a toga-wearing ancient Greek jazz musician?" Throughout the Modal Improv Survival Guide, Fareed demonstrates how to use the notes in each mode to build chords and melodies to create moods. "Early jazz and bebop players used a chromatic, arpeggio-based approach to build melodies, while the more modern players used modes to limit their note choices and set a mood for their improvisations." Good news; you will grasp the concept of modal playing very quickly, especially under Fareed's tutelage. There's no complicated chord changes to solo over; often times you're improvising over simple one and two-chord vamps.
