Each page in the first part of this book starts with a scale and its arpeggio. The rest of the page is full of tunes that use that scale and arpeggio.
As you play the tunes, you will find out why learning scales and arpeggios can help make you a better player. If you haven't guessed already, this is because most tunes are made up of little more than parts of scales and arpeggios.
