The Easy Guide to Jazz Guitar Arpeggios
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.
Do you cover fingerings for different arpeggio inversions, or do you work everything off of root position?
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,
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!
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 !!
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.
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!
