Hello all,
I lost a lot of stuff in a flood 4 years ago. A lot of books.
I have my fakebooks still, but I lost my instruction books from the 70s and 80s.

One of the books I'm looking for is "Styles For The Studio" by Leon White.
It was no big deal. I think I used it for learning scales. I went looking for it online and found only 2 or 4 copys and all starting at over $95.00!

I don't get it. Why is it so valuable?
If any guitarist who knows of this book can tell me if you can why it is such a rare item, I'd be grateful.

I still have "From Sight to Sound" which can be purchased for a normal price.

Anyone have a suggestion for a book for learning scales, please advise me. No tab though, I can't do tab.

Thank you in advance, Wayne,

Learning to play the guitar again after 10 years is not like the old saying, "It's just like riding a bike". At least not for me. I need to practice and that means scales for me. I've got good chord books.

Anyone have a suggestion for a good book for learning scales, please advise me.
I can't do tab.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Wayne,

Hi Wayne, the best scale book for us guitarist’s that I have found is “The Gig Bag Book Of Scales For All Guitarists”. It contains 180 scales in both tap and notation. I bought it at Barnes n Nobles for $15 USD. You may find it cheaper on the internet. This will cover any scale you will need to know and then some.

I hope this helps – MarioD

Hi MarioD,
It looks like a good one. But I don't think it had caged fretboard diagrams. I'm not such a good reader.
I'm looking for something that has patterns. Like the way chord books are.
I'm still researching guitar books. But when I find something I think I'm getting The book you suggested as well. It's very reasonable.
Thanks, Wayne

I had that book when I was a kid. I really wish I could find it, but it probably got lost in a move somewhere along the line.

I've searched a lot of guitar and Jazz forums and nobody knows what happened to Leon White Books. The only one in print is Sight To Sound, for reading music. I have that one, pretty old but great shape.

I remember going through this when I had to replace my Chord book. I had to buy a few and then send them back till I found the right one. If I only lived near a music store.

Any other scale/pattern books that helped guitarists?

Thanks, Wayne

Anybody have Ted Greenes' "Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing" 1 or 2?

After this post, I promise I'll stop.

Wayne, how big a hurry are you for the books. I visit book sales and used book stores ad hoc, but my ex visits them frequently as she is a Winston Churchill and WWll historian. I would request she keep and eye out for them. My daughter had a basement flood three years ago and we are slowly replacing works of literature that were important to her. I found Ted Greene's Chord Chemistry in a used book store for $2.00!
Books can become old friends so let me know. DennisD

Thanks for the links. I've been to those sights and they don't have the book there. But I emailed them a couple of times and asked. No reply yet but, maybe they know how I can get a copy. Maybe they will brong it out again.

I found 2 sellers and they want over $95.00 for it. That's insane.

Thanks again, Wayne

Thank you DennisD,

Yes if you could be on the lookout for this I'd really be grateful.
Styles For The Studio, by Leon White.
There's a picture of it here, http://tedgreenebookeditions.com/Dalezdenek/LeonWhite/StylesfortheStudio/index.html
It really shoud only be a few bucks. I really don't understand the price of the private sellers I found. $95.00
Thanks again, Wayne

p.s. I did find my Ted Greenes books :-)

Yeah, that is insane. I once say a book I wanted (even in current production) that Amazon wanted $90.00, then I found it on the 'net at Warren Buffet's bookstore for online for $19.99! So keep trying... I saw also a service that would scan the book for your too since the book is n longer in production...

Crazy, right?
The book cost $4.95 years ago, but still, his other book, "From Sight To Sound", new, right now is only $13.30.
I'm still baffled why this book has vanished.
I'm surprised no one has scanned it and put it on the internet, like in PDF. I'd pay!
Still no reply from the Publisher, we'll see.
Wayne,

Well, Dale Zdenek, the publisher sent me an Email saying it would take them up to 2 years to get it back in print.
Guess I'll just keep my eyes open for it.

The World Wide Web is *inundated* with guitar teaching aid stuff.

Websearch.

Bookmark the ones you like.

Print out the html to have some scale guides to practice with.

Most of it is free.

The patterns, the TAB, etc.

...or look in GDaddy's music closet...
"Styles For The Studio" was and still is one of my favorites.
"Three Sounds of the Triad" is another that is hard to find...by Billy Bauer a great jazz guitarist!

Hi GDaddy,
I asked a few people who have this book and haven't used it in30 years. Asked them what they thought of it and they said they really don't care for it. When I asked them if they would like to sell or share it somehow, they all said "Nope".
If you don't like something and don't use it anymore why not pass it on to someone who could use it?
It's not like I'm going to sell it and make money on it.

When we left NY City over 25 years ago and moved Upstate NY to a really small rural town, I went to a small local Music store and wanted to buy my Fender Jazzmaster Guitar. He wanted $300.00, so I said I'd take it. When he found out I was from the New York City he wouldn't sell it to me. He got really angry and said I was only going to bring it back to NY and sell it for a fortune. I sent someone else in the next day to buy it and got it for $250.00.

Oh also the publisher, Dale Zdenek sent me a Holiday Greeting Card. Very nice people.

Sorry, just rambling here, Wayne,

Wayne, I have sent the word out to my ex and my daughters to be on the lookout for the books: Ted Greenes' "Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing" 1 or 2, Leon Whites’ “Styles For The Studio”. While I was out of town, I took a quick look in the store where I found Chord Chemistry but had no luck. We will keep looking for you, just let me know if you find it before we do, or when we can stop looking. Thanks. DennisD.
