Mastering Arpeggios Part 1 - TABS ONLY
This course covers everything you need to know about the four essential types of triad arpeggios: major, minor, diminished and augmented. Focusing on the popular guitar key of G, the instructor presents all possible fretboard positions and fingering patterns for G major, minor, diminished and augmented arpeggios, then shows you extended two-notes-per-string patterns that move up and across the neck diagonally, spanning three octaves. You then learn the circle of fifths/fourths and how to go about transposing and practicing all the shapes you’ve learned to different keys and positions, either by progressing through the cycle, or moving up or down chromatically, one fret at a time. Also covered are the seven diatonic arpeggios that live in the key of G major, open-voiced, one-note-per-string arpeggios, interval patterns, tapping arpeggios on one string, classic rock-style arpeggio licks and excerpts from classical guitar and violin pieces that demonstrate how open strings may be used in conjunction with fretted notes and quick positions shifts to extend and maximize note range.
