Getting Chromatic: Bebop Arpeggios for Guitar
One of the questions that I often get asked by students in lessons and workshops is, “I
know all my arpeggios and can outline chord changes, but how do sound like jazz?” In
response to this question I’ve started teaching a workshop titled “Instant Jazz: Bebop
Arpeggios for Guitar.

Since not everyone can make it to one of my Bebop Arpeggios for Guitar workshops in
person, I decided to put the basics concepts of the class in an article for everyone to
enjoy.

If you want to check out how to add chromatic notes to scales check out my lesson
titled “Bebop Scale Patterns for Guitar.”

The basic premise behind these Bebop Arpeggios for Guitar is built around the notes of
any chord, the arpeggio, which many people already know and have under their
fingers.

arpeggio shape , in this case C7.

jazz guitar practice routine.

Guy: Yeah it’s a bit tricky to get the sound of the chromatic notes on the

the downbeats, so that converted me to check out that sound more.
