The Easy Guide to Jazz Guitar Arpeggios
I have over a dozen books and DVD's on jazz theory, and Matt and Dirk's method is as good as it gets. Since retirement, I have devoted a lot of time to jazz music theory, but became bogged down and frustrated at my lack of progress and originality at improvisation. I can now acknowledge the important connection between chord shapes and scales when soloing, thanks to your easy to follow lessons, and excellent examples, and backing tracks.
This book is an excellent source of information. It provides a nice and clear guide on the subject, plus it has some lick exercises too! As an almost intermediate jazz player, learning those arpeggios have helped me make a more fluent and meaningful improvisation.
I just can say thanks for the book! Excellent material!
One of my favorite books . I am working through the lessons and really feel this could be the answer to my success . There was a lot of thought put into these lessons and I will do my best to complete the course thanks again. Ken
I have other studies of arpeggios in jazz and I find this one the best by far. Mimi Fox has a great lesson and from what I read is highly touted. It is great information but I find this lesson much more logical in getting arpeggios down from the start and it progresses as it should. This lesson works for beginners and seasoned vets. Much more information about how to use them and the different traditional techniques used by the greats.
I found much useful information in this book. It is the type of lesson I will come back to many times. I find most jazz lessons lacking in any information about right hand technique or the fingering of notes. I have brought this up to other jazz lesson contacts and do not seem to get any comments back.
This ebook is the most interesting approach to arpeggios I have ever seen.. some of the things we come to accidentally here and there, but it's all here.. I like that you distinguished the classical 'arpeggio' to the jazz arpeggio.. I knew there was a difference, but never made the connection.. Opens up new ideas, and shows how to blend closed and open arpeggios.. simply brilliant Matt & Dirk.. brilliant..
Thank you! exactly what I needed.. got a whole new approach to my practice routine now. john petrucci warmups and these.. awesome..
Tonight I'very happy: I'm working two months on this book and I feel I begin to play better. Initially I was sad because arpeggios sounded very mechanical but now I feel I can play them more naturally and melodically. Very happy to have bought this book, thank you matt and dirk, hope we play better!
Hi Matt & Dirk,
Great e-book You guys deliver! and the price is right. Because of your work, I am learning to play jazz a little more every time I interact with Jazzguitar.be. More than worth it. Thanks. G.D.
