An Introduction to Arpeggios

Ideal for the developing guitarist wishing to aquire a grasp of the linear or melodic expression of chord sounds. The material presented here applies to all guitarists in every style and will not only expand your repertoire of sounds but will also provide for excellent technical study material that is both challenging and useful.

This course will provide you with a practical working knowledge of common chord sounds and fingerings that are easily mastered and immediately practical both from a musical and technical perspective. If you want to learn to improvise and solo over changes the material her will give you the tools you need.

Think of the Arpeggio as a moveable melodic representation of a chord that doesn’t lock your hand into chordal forms but instead allows for individual note choices that express the chords and ultimately the harmony of the chosen song material.

Chord progressions or the “harmony” of a song can be very clearly stated with the use of arpeggios thereby allowing you to create improvisations that are as unique as the songs themselves.
