Arpeggios Guitar Lessons
Congratulations for deciding to learn about the scary subject of arpeggios! I am kidding. Arpeggios have such a reputation perhaps because of the fancy sounding name. But they are nothing more than the notes of a chord played in succession, as opposed to strummed.
So now that we have de-glamorized the name 'arpeggio' it is time for you to get on with some arpeggio guitar lessons. As is the case with chords, arpeggios can be broken into various categories. My guitar lessons cover what I think are the most useful arpeggios, and similar to my philosophy on scales - you don't need to learn hundreds of arpeggios.
Through my arpeggio guitar lessons, you will learn to visualize arpeggios, and you will learn the theory behind arpeggios which will enable you to play any arpeggio that you can dream up, whether sweep picked, tapped, with legato, etc. That is a far more empowering approach than trying to drill hundreds of arpeggios...
We start our journey into the wild world of arpeggios with this Major Triad Arpeggio exercise, which will help build the needed foundation to move on to the more advanced guitar lessons.In Guitar Lesson: Triad Arpeggios - 2 Strings
In this exercise, we start looking at triads across 5 strings by first taking a look at a Major Triad.In Guitar Lesson: Unlocking Triads Throughout the Fretboard, Across 5 Strings
In this exercise we expand what we know about triad arpeggios and look at a major 7th arpeggio and how to play it on two strings for some cool sounds!In Guitar Lesson: Seventh Arpeggios - Cool Sounding Patterns on Two Strings
We continue studying triad arpeggios in this exercise, by looking at a Minor Triad across 5 strings.In Guitar Lesson: Unlocking Triads Throughout the Fretboard, Across 5 Strings
In this exercise, we take a look at Minor 7th arpeggios and inversions on two stringsIn Guitar Lesson: Seventh Arpeggios - Cool Sounding Patterns on Two Strings
In this exercise I show you how to use various triad arpeggio shapes from this guitar lesson to write a cool sounding arpeggio progression.In Guitar Lesson: Unlocking Triads Throughout the Fretboard, Across 5 Strings
In this exercise we will see how to add the 13th to some of the two-string Major 7th arpeggio patterns that we previously covered, to create a more interesting sound.In Guitar Lesson: Adding Extensions to 2 String Maj7 Arpeggio - Great way to add some color!
