Chord Melody Guitar Music has just announced the arrival of a new collection of jazz guitar chord melody solos by legendary jazz guitar virtuoso and recording artist Robert Conti. This 9 volume series of repertoire books which is called “Signature Chord Melody Arrangements” features solo jazz guitar arrangements of famous standards by composers such as Richard Rodgers, Jerome Kern, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Henry Mancini, George Gershwin, Michel LeGrande, and Duke Ellington. The 9th volume finishes out the series by featuring traditional Christmas and holiday songs which are also arranged for solo jazz guitar.
Robert Conti creatively arranges every song with his unique harmonic restructuring and for ease of learning, the correct chord diagram grids are displayed above every melody note so there is no confusion about exactly what to play and where to play it. The student’s playing skill and as well as level of confidence starts to rapidly increase because he or she begins to hear the improvement in his or her sound from the very first day. Each arrangement that the student learns is performance quality, suitable for restaurants and night clubs, and utilizes Conti’s advanced, one of a kind harmonic approach.
Peabody Conservatory trained guitarist Steven Herron, who is also the president of Chord Melody Guitar Music, commented “I’ve admired Robert Conti’s jazz guitar playing for years now! When I listen to him play I hear influences that range from famous jazz guitarists like Johnny Smith, Wes Montgomery, and Howard Roberts to legendary jazz pianists like Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum. To be able to offer his 9 volume series of superbly arranged chord melody solos to our customers is very exciting for me because I know that they are going to be absolutely thrilled when they start playing his solo jazz guitar arrangements!”
A large selection of instructional courses consisting of books and DVDs for learning other styles of music for the guitar has always been stocked by Chord Melody Guitar Music. These courses include techniques and solos for blues, jazz, country, flamenco, classical, rock, and acoustic guitar. The art of playing jazz guitar chord melody solos, where the guitarist will often harmonize each melody note of the song with a different chord, is a very complex, highly personal, and technically challenging style of guitar playing. This 9 volume series of Robert Conti’s “Signature Chord Melody Arrangements” books makes the learning process considerably easier by providing the student with clearly written pages of block chord diagrams that are each placed above their respective melody notes.
