Do you get the feeling sometimes that a lot of your guitar solos sound alike and that you keep playing the same things over and over? Arpeggios are the solution to your problem...

A big part of learning how to play jazz guitar is learning to “play the changes”. While learning scales is one avenue to explore playing changes, the most direct way to outline any chord in your soloing is to use arpeggios in your lines.

The Easy Guide to Jazz Guitar Arpeggios is a step-by-step approach that teaches you the fingerings, knowledge, exercises, and common phrases, you need to confidently solo over any set of jazz chord changes.

I like lessons of Matt and Dirk. They are informative and useful. The same can be said about their book. It is filled with excellent illustrations and good examples, in tablature and classical music notes. This allows you to see the shape of the chords and fingering options. You build up your dictionary of jazz phrases and can use them in your own solos. Many thanks to the authors. Leonid Ostapenko, Moscow, Russia.


I wholeheartedly agree with Bruce as to the contents this eBook.

Jack Wells

This approach to learning and applying Arpeggios, I find very systematic and that means easy to learn.


Do you indicate how to fingering arpeggios?

Dirk and Matt

There are guidelines for fingerings, but not specific fingerings all the time as there are often more than one or two ways to finger any arpeggio depending on the person playing. Hope that helps.


Thanks gents!


Just what I needed, very helpful


Do you cover fingerings for different arpeggio inversions, or do you work everything off of root position?

Matt and Dirk

We cover both root and inversion positions for arpeggios in the eBook.


I want it!!! Tomorrow ill buy it. Thank you very much Dirk..this is what i was looking for!


Dirk, as always you are very thorough in your explanations, however I'm not familiar with some of the terms you use for some of the chords.
I think I have to get into theory and relative chords to know more about what is going on here . I know lots of chords and I can put them together,but I need to know more about why substitutions and terms to better understand these lessons,
Thank you,Vinnie


Great resource and excellent value. This is the 'secret' of that jazz sound - arpegs spiced up with accidentals/approach notes etc. Great for fast changes.



Hello Dirk, Is it fully functional with a Mac? I mean the audio files, etc.

Matt and Dirk

Yes, this eBook is fully functional on any device or operating system.

I bought the book for my son who is studying jazz guitar now. This book clarifies all the things that his teacher has shown him in a very concise place. It's easy to follow and the material you won't find any place else laid out this way. Great job!


The books of Dirk are always clear and clever. Know to play on modal way is important but play in' arpeggio is more important! Wes Montgomery play beautiful arpeggios so.... That' star way


Hi Dirk and Matt,

I was wondering if the samples and backing tracks given inside the ebook are links to webpages or you have thought of a repository from which one can download them - so I could listen to them even offline :) - thank you and keep up the good job !!

Dirk and Matt

they are both links and files you can download to work with offline.


I'm very happy with the arpeggios ebook. I'm mostly playing Gypsy Jazz which features a lot of arpeggio work. Fairly comprehensive in the chords it covers. I especially liked the charts showing how to play a given arpeggio over a different chord to get unique sounds. For example playing Gmaj7 over Em7 to get an Em9 sound or Gmaj7 over Cmaj7 to get a Cmaj9#11 sound. Lot's of good info for the price.

Excellent tool and guide for the learning and use of Arpeggios. Really helped connect the dots and a fun way of learning the techniques. Well worth the price.


I am very happy with everything you deliver, Dirk!!!


Very good Guide, clear and easy. Arpeggios really open your mind to improvisation.


You've done excellent job so far as I can see/check from your messages & website. Few samples from your book are necessary for the people to realise once more your great job. I've learnt a lot from you. Many thanks!!!


Great, I bought the book yesterday and yesterday evening I began to study. I'm happy, you learn the theory, the forms and immediately you exercise to put them in real practice situations. Well organized and useful, thank!
