Jazz Arpeggio Sweeps Lessons 1- 4

by | Jazz Improvisation

This post includes the first 4 installments of Jazz Arpeggio Sweeps. Through this ongoing series, each week you get to build up your improvisational vocabulary as well as your economy picking chops with new sweep arpeggio based licks.

Let me add that jazz musicians sometimes refer to the concept that inspired some of these phrases as “sheets of sound”, alluding to saxophonist John Coltrane’s use of lightning fast wide range arpeggios.

For the first 4 episodes we will be focusing on ideas which can be applied over several of the natural major scale modes.


The Jazz Arpeggio Sweep Files for Lessons 1-4 can be downloaded for $7.00 .

II-V-I) .
