Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns by Nicolas Slonimsky

The Slonimsky Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns is classic music literature. Jazz musicians particularly should find this text, because the text leads to ideas in understanding improvisation. Jazz musicians emphasize that John Coltrane studied this text in enahncing his improvisational genius. I studied music at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles California. I then formally studied Jazz Guitar as a Music Major at the University of Southern California. As a child, I studied classical guitar at the Conservatory of the Arts in St. Louis, Missouri. I performed as a professional musician throughout the 1980s and 1990s. I enjoyed the opportunity to work as a studio musician during this time, and this text definitely helps improving ones improvisational skills or Chops. Study Slonmisky. I would suggest not to simply read the text, but study it.

Many guitarists and others own a copy, but few have got much advantage from it. Even advanced players claim it's difficult to use, dry and dauntingly long. This free, page ebook is designed to help in three distinct ways. The first is that is gives a completely new account of the theory behind the first twelve chapters of the Thesaurus , the most widely-used and systematic part of the book. This is done in a clean, modern and rigorous way that completely does away with Slonimsky's quirky and offputting terminology and that significantly extends his original idea.
