Book of Arpeggios for Guitar displays arpeggio shapes, parent scales, and chords in six positions of the fretboard. Some arpeggios are presented on multiple pages with alternate parent scales if they are commonly used in various playing situations.

This book can be useful as a resource for basic through advanced arpeggio shapes, as well as a visual practice aid that combines arpeggios, scales, and chords on a single page.


ARPEGGIOS! ia a nine volume series featuring in-depth arpeggio studies over the chord progression for a single jazz standard in each issue. Arpeggios are presented as three string, one octave patterns in various inversions played in four positions of the fretboard. Mixing inversions is a great way to become familiar with common tone and voice leading opportunities when comping or soloing. The latter part of the book takes the same patterns learned in Section One and superimposes them over the chord progression to create more harmonically extended and interesting lines. Downloadable backing tracks are available for each volume.
