An arpeggio is simply playing the notes of a chord, one after another, in a melodic fashion. Piano, bass, string, and horn players routinely find the study of arpeggios a staple of their learning process. But, somehow, guitarists often manage to skip over this essential musical building block. This book is designed to demystify arpeggios and demonstrate their application in a musical and easy-to-understand format. All of the material is presented within the context of various “jam tracks” which allow students to immediately apply new knowledge and hear for themselves why arpeggios are essential to their playing. All of the music examples are presented in standard notation and tablature so there is no need to read music. Also includes a special demonstration and play-along CD.
