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 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 really helpful to fully understand chord arpeggios and at this price. WOW! Thanks alot guys


Very easy..Perfect for beginners and intermediate. I recommade the method for every people fond of jazz guitar


Very good method. Very easy to implement. Congratulations and thank you again.

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!

Fernando S Oliveira

I bought this book some months ago, but started to read couple weeks ago. Seems a very very instructive book, in a easy language, very easy to understand. Great job!

William von Zangenberg

Great book and lots of good information that you can actually use.

Christope Davenne

It's the first ebook I studied for the first to the last page. Very well written, great exercices. I recommend !


Great in depth guide to the application of arpeggios. This book opens up the players imagination to the myriad of possibilities of using arpeggios in a Jazz setting.


Great product, really helping take my guitar journey to the next level!

Ken Andrews

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've worked through this book and I've found it to be very helpful. I will be referring to it often over the next few months! It gives me much to work with as I expand it in other keys!


I'm very pleased with this ebook. I'm working through it and find it very encouraging. Thanks, guys.

I'm in Canberra Australia.


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!

Adrian Charles

How can I purchase the original hard cover copies of these lessons?

Matt and Dirk

Hi Adrian. There are no hard copies, but when you purchase the lessons you can access them online or as PDF's which you can print if you wish.


Well laid out and easy to follow. I'm glad I made the purchase.


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.
