Master harmony on the violin fingerboard! This book will give you the fluency to improvise, play comping (accompanying) parts, add background lines, and deepen your enjoyment of all kinds of music. These exercises and etudes will help you practice arpeggios and comping voicings for commonly used chord progressions, with appropriate fingerings and alternate spellings when needed. You will develop left-hand dexterity and broaden your harmonic understanding and vocabulary. Audio tracks let you hear the exercises and then practice along with an accompanist.

You will learn to: Construct the common triads and seventh chords - major, minor, diminished, and minor 7b5; choose fingering strategies for common chord progressions; play chords across the strings; voice-lead chords to transition smoothly and ergonomically; improvise melodic lines over chord changes; comp chord patterns using essential rhythmic grooves.
