    Has anyone used An Improviser's OS [Wayne Krantz] or any other books that helped them immensely? I heard Kurt answer that question in the Berklee 2001 clinic, and was curious what you guys thought.

    I can say that (although i haven't worked a whole lot out of it) Monder's Composition book is a fun thing to work from. a lot of great voicings and fingerings.

    if you want a book on harmony that will blow your mind get "Mel Bay's Complete Book of Harmony Theory and Voicing" by brett willmott. the one after that "Complete Book of Harmonic Extensions for Guitar" is great too.

  4. The Guitarist

    m sure some of you knew. Also check out "The Chord Factory", his more recent book. He`s great at approaching things in a "think outside the box" kind of way.

    To be honest, I rarely go through books from start to finish. I usually find a concept that i like in the book and then go off on my own. But I just got this book called The New Chord Dictionary by Lupa Santiago. It's by a Brazilian guitarist and the lay out is really good and includes backing tracks. It's not just a book of chord diagrams, it also has sections on suggestions for applying the various voicings in a 2-5-1 setting. Since it's a Brazilian book the title is in Portuguese: " Novo DicionĂ¡rio De Acordes Para Guitarra E Violao"

    It's worth checking out.
