    Thought I'd share this fun arpeggio exercise - a basic jazz guitar 2-5-1 workout!





    When it comes to jazz improvisation...arpeggios are your greatest friend!!

    The 2 5 1 chord progression is one of the most essential building blocks of jazz - and using arpeggios in your playing is a key component of jazz improvisation, and also a great way to start soloing on any track - even if you don't necessarily understand the theory behind the progression yet.

    There's tab for the exercise as well.

    HAPPY JAMMING!

    Sounds great meritonemusic! Very smooth, as usual.

    Next - how about spicing it up by adding some approach notes to the tones in your chord outlines? 1, 2, then 3 approach notes.


    Then we'll really be "cooking with grease".
