Great Stuff . . .


I bought both Volumes together at terrific price 2 1/2 weeks ago. There is a great deal of information to digest so I'm taking the books in with small bite sized portions. These books will provide an encyclopedic jazz reference for years to come at my fingertips for me. The pdf format allows me to add my own notes and comments as I continue my journey into jazz learning. The jazz artist links are better than a bibliography reference. I may not be purchasing many CD's, but I can always find less expensive offerings from the original artists. Got to go now and practice . . .


Keep Calm and Play Music,
Jon

So far so good! Reinforcing the basics for me and also launching into new territory. The price was right!

Very clear, well organized, useful examples and graphics; very recommendable; much more than just value for money.

Anyone familiar with the present cost of guitar lessons will appreciate the wide swath of coverage offered in these two volumes. The material offers vast time-saving techniques for learning. Pick up the important stuff, like which notes to leave out of extended chords, why arpeggios are so important for learning the fretboard, etc. etc. Well worth the price of admission, and presented clearly, with few ambiguities. You need only the most basic knowledge of theory to really capitalize on the progression from simple ideas to fairly esoteric nuance. Highly recommended !

Any material from Matt & Dirk is exceptional. My only regret is that I didn't discover them sooner. I just need to transfer the lessons out through my little deluxe reverb! Thanks again for your generosity in sharing your brilliance.

The book helped me to achieve the next level in playing. Being fed up with only playing the pentatonic I learned from the book how to play closer to the harmonics. Great stuff!

Hi,I'm Jorge, from Spain, I bought this book few weeks ago. It's really great and very progresive; but i have two things to say: Why the progression it´s ii-v-i-vi and no i-vi-ii-v? and other thing, in my book, in the section maj7 arpeggios shapes missing one shape on 12 fret with second finger no?. Good work!!!

Matt and Dirk

Thanks for checking out the book. ii-V-I-VI is a very common progression, like I-VI-ii-V. If you want to apply the material to that progression, just start on the I and work around that way.

We will look into the fingering issue and send out an update if needed. Thanks!

The book is great but any advices about the way to fingering the arpeggios? For instance, is using barré a good idea. Kind regards.

Matt and Dirk
Thanks. You can use any fingerings that are comfortable, and barres are always good if you can use them.

This e-book is an excellent tool for intermediate-level guitarists like myself who have gotten stuck in a rut and looking for an engaging method to start tackling more advanced material. The theory with audio examples and jam tracks is perfect, and has kick-started a regular practice routine I actually enjoy. I've always been eclectic in my musical tastes (soul, blues/classic-rock, fusion, pop, Hip Hop), and can now start learning to decipher and jam along to all those hip Steely Dan tunes. In a past interview, Jon Herington (Steely Dan guitarist) stated that the key to learning how to solo over complex chord changes is to master the arpeggios. I commend you on providing such a useful tool for many guitarists embarking on their jazz excursions. Well done!
