Book Description

Here are three questions people are always asking me:

  • How can I master all the arpeggio shapes?
  • How can I transform arpeggios into melodies?
  • How can I build speed in my playing?


This booklet answers those questions. You will learn 22 arpeggio shapes - vertical and horizontal shapes for Major, Minor, Major9 and Minor 9 chords - and you will learn how to create a short daily practice routine to master them all very fast!

For each arpeggio figure, you’ll also get an exercise – a phrase that will demonstrate one or more ways to create interesting melodies using the arpeggio shape. Those exercises or licks are written in such a way that you can repeat each phrase over and over again - to improve your technique and memory and save time in your improvisation.

All the arpeggios come with pick directions and special exercises to master the Rest-Stroke picking technique.

    “If you have the Arpeggio course, I find this to be a great complement....and it is free. It doesn't have all the arpeggios you will learn in the arpeggio course but I do enjoy the various "tricks" he gives with each arpeggio. Whether he shows you half-tone approach, enclosures, rhythm variations, etc, they are all little embellishments that will help you along the path to making interesting improvisations. If you don't have the Arpeggio course, you can read my review of the course there, but would only repeat here: What are you waiting for?”

    “I'm new to Gypsy Jazz and have found this a great starting point. I don't always agree with the LH fingerings, but I've learned other styles. There seems to be quite a lot of debate on LH fingering anyway, largely down to Django's disability no doubt. However, the RH stuff is spot on. I'm new to using a plectrum and I've found it very difficult after only using fingers previously. Jaakov's explanation of down (rest and sweep) and up strokes (in combination with his free videos) are the best I've seen.”
