Edition: Paperback Book & CD Package, Vibraphone

This album is designed so that you can learn the basics of playing the vibraphone. If you are a drummer it is never too late to start. If you already play keyboard percussion instruments but want to learn how to improvise and accompany soloists in popular music, this album is an excellent start. Includes instructions on how to improvise a solo on the blues; accompaniment techniques, chords both basic and advanced, and much more.

Includes a high-quality printed method book and a compact disc containing complete instruction on all topics and full rhythm section accompaniments to each piece, minus you, the soloist.

If a soloist is heard on the demonstration audio clip, a complete reference version is also on the included CD, along with the separate background music for your play-along usage.

Note: Volume 2 also available, catalog number MMOCD5102.
