Book/CD pack. Chord shapes are moveable thus making it easier to play in any key without difficulty. The purpose of this book is to present common licks used by Charlie Christian in the basic chord shapes of F, D and A. These concepts and fingerings have been developed by analyzing the licks most often used in his solos. Covers idiomatic techniques; chapters on each of the principal chord shapes explaining how the fingerings can be altered to make major, minor, dominant seventh and diminished seventh voicings; the use of "transitional" chord shapes; and what the author calls tetrafragments, i.e., the core element of a lick. CD includes 93 tracks. Notation and chord diagrams. 94 pp.
