Bebop Lap Steel Guitar: An Introduction to Bebop Tunes in C6 Tuning is intended to open up the C6 tuning for you in a way that haven't seen before. Using a vertical approach (along the length of the neck), you will see how it is possible to play more challenging single note passages in an easier way. This type of playing allows you to articulate more cleanly. You will also see how to approach "comping chords", as each tune has the chords tabbed as well. Finally, there is a section on the "Vertical Approach" with several pages of exercises on scales, including Major, Whole Tone, Chromatic and Diminished. You haven't seen anything like this before.
The 6 songs are presented in a graduation to the most challenging. The titles are:
Doxy (Sonny Rollins)
Straight, No Chaser (Thelonious Monk)
Oleo (Sonny Rollins)
Yardbird Suite (Charlie Parker)
Daahoud (Clifford Brown)
Donna Lee (Miles Davis)
