"(Overcome) The Arpeggio World" guitar instructional e-book


Josip wrote a guitar instructional e-book "(Overcome) The Arpeggio World", covering the topic of learning and implementing arpeggio phrases in solos and compositions. The reason he wrote the book are vast opportunities evolving from arpeggios - a sequence of notes from a certain chord or mode. His playing and songwriting style uses many different approaches of playing arpeggios. It also involves various techniques introduced by 90's guitarists, packed in a melodic and tasteful riffs or melodies.

May it be legato, directional or sweep picking, or even tapping, he's always looking for a way to execute meaningful ideas in an arranged solution for a specific piece of a song, in whatever genre it may be. Being an open minded musician, he's always learning to implement his musical knowledge in a different way, and constantly looking for a way to improve. He wrote (Overcome) The Arpeggio World as a catalyst of his discoveries, and as a path to creating interesting, exciting and uplifting guitar licks.

Our song "Godly Energy" was born out of it, so, it's something you definitely need to learn!
