AMA Verlag M.Sagmeister Arpeggien Jazzgit

Book with CD

After his first book "Michael Sagmeister's Jazzguitar", which provided an extensive insight into the theme of jazz guitar, comes a book with a more specific content - the arpeggio. The answer to his students' questions about whether they had already dealt extensively with these chord breaks is often: "I know how its done but it's not my thing" or "My fingers are too small for it." In other words, this book deals with a topic that should be highlighted, because it opens up new possibilities for improvisation to the guitarist, avoiding stereotypical musical content. This work explains how to create arpeggios, transfer them in different positions and styles to the fretboard, work with these arpeggios to get them first in the fingers, and secondly musically creatively, and, of course, which arpeggios can be used in which situations and why. The main goal for the player is to make the creativity work with the material offered and to use the concepts in his/her (everyday, current) playing, not just to play the arpeggios up and down. Just in case that were not enough, there is an arpeggio library in the back for quick reference.
