Watch the Clouds online guitar lesson by Reinier Voet from Gypsy Jazz Melodic Soloing Guidebook

The melody of "Nuages" really invites us to use arpeggios to embellish it. This is because it's nice to break up the constantly descending chromatic lines of the song. As an added benefit, you illustrate the harmonies by playing the notes of the chords. The word arpeggio means "broken chord". Applying arpeggios in this way really anchors your solo to the chord progression. At the end of a melodic line, there is often space to embellish with arpeggios, especially in a slower ballad like "Nuages".

I will play an example solo with some arpeggio lines executed just after the melody, where there is still time left in the bar. So, listen and count along. This way you will be aware of how many beats are left and when you can fill the space with some extra lines.
