    Given how commonplace this progression is in jazz, it can't be over-emphasised 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 wasn't 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 names/profiles.

    The ability to look inside was useful as i'm 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 bruno's 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 non-linear way, so it doesn't 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 styles/rhythms to play along to etc.
