This book and accompanying audio offer a unique, simplified approach to using arpeggios when improvising. The material is for guitarists of all levels looking to improve their technique and improvisation skills. This method makes it possible to seamlessly incorporate arpeggios into jazz improvisation. Included are over thirty arpeggio-based licks spanning major, minor, dominant, blues and ii-V-I categories. The book also presents straightforward methods for using arpeggios creatively. Most guitarists view arpeggios and scales as separate entities - this book solves this problem by illustrating the relationship between eight simple arpeggio fingerings and scales/modes. Several etudes are also included. These simple mini-arpeggios will provide the reader with an entire world of musical possibilities.
