In addition to teaching jazz guitar in a really effective way it also helps with the enjoyment and appreciation of jazz in general

I am impressed enough that i will purchase the minor 2 5 1 book once i feel a bit more fluent with the major 2 5 1 progression

This author presents the materials with the learners experience very much in mind

May 2015i have played through this book and experimented with the ideas


Very well laid out introducing new ideas at a managable pace

    Given how commonplace this progression is in jazz it cant be overemphasised how important it is to know it inside out

    Along with introducing chromaticism combining the arpeggios with bebop scales the use of b9s for the v tritone substitutions for the v and extending the arpeggios themselves 3 to 9 5 to 11 7 to 13 the book really does take you a long way from the simple root 3rd 5th and 7th sequence that you start out with

    After hearing sheryl bailey associate jazz professor at berkley say that jazz is more about arpeggios than scales all of a sudden things became clearer yet there was still something missing

    At first i wasnt too sure about whether the book was legitimate or not after all there are some very dodgy products on amazon with glowing 5 star reviews clearly written by people with fake namesprofiles

    The ability to look inside was useful as im an already advanced guitar player just under 20 years at this point playing mainly rock metal shred blues and country with just a little bit of melodic jazz thrown in courtesy of jimmy brunos no nonsense jazz and the chapter headings were things i had heard about jazz but not studied in the way the book lays out

    What really sold me on the book was the fact that the author attended leeds college of music and took a ba in jazz studies the same place tom quayle studied jazz

    The idea is to be fluent with starting your arpeggios from the root 3rd 5th or 7th across a couple of octaves going in either direction and eventually being able to form credible sounding progressions using notes from the chords in a nonlinear way so it doesnt just sound like a collection of scales being played

    It is all starting to come together for me now what notes to choose not looking at the fretboard so much trying different stylesrhythms to play along to etc
