Master Arpeggio-Based Jazz Bebop Soloing for Guitar
"i wish i had this book 40 years ago when i was cutting my jazz teeth. horn players have known this stuff for eons, but somehow guitarists missed the boat. even the great classic jazz guitar tutors didnt spend much time on topics like voice leading. possibly because the guitar was primarily regarded as a rhythm instrument in the early days of jazz.
I believe that if someone had given me this book 40 years ago it would have shaved years off my practise time. I eventually did learn the subject matter but I made a lot of mistakes along the way and spent a lot of time playing the wrong things
I would highly recommend this book to students of jazz guitar, and teachers alike. I am a teacher and I find this book to be a great resource."
"arpeggios are the building blocks of jazz improvisation (soloing) and this book is a masterwork on how to build the necessary skills to master them. it is not a book you can sit down and rush through, and that is a good thing. follow the instructions the author sets out in the beginning and over time you will begin to see the wisdom of the method he recommends in this volume."
