18-year old Miles Davis told jazz pianist, composer and theorist George Russell that his musical aspiration was to "learn all the changes" and go beyond the traditional harmony of jazz at the time. That remark led Russell to ultimately develop The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization, a liberating theory of harmony based on jazz rather than European music. Subsequently, 33-year old Davis shattered the harmonic structure of bebop putting that theory to work in "modal jazz" recordings like Kind of Blue, one of the top-selling jazz records of all time.

Renowned Berklee College of Music faculty guitarist Jon Finn, combines his experience, education, and stylistic versatility in this eclectic series of lessons for aspiring rock guitarists. Jon's innovative approach is unique, fun, and challenging. The book/CD set and DVD both offer a well researched original take on the use of pentatonic scales in rock improvisation. Using his "Warp Refraction Principle" which takes into account the major third tuning interval between the second and third strings, Jon presents a series of five vertical patterns applied in two-string increments throughout the fretboard. The philosophy behind this project is to present concepts and techniques as a thought process rather than simply providing a reference manual.

Organize your vocabulary of licks by harmonic situations and then plug them into your solos. In time, you’ll uncover the harmonic and rhythmic shapes behind the licks and they’ll become a part of your own musical language. That’s when you’ll really start improvising.”
