Even if you’re not into “shredding,” practicing arpeggios will create fluid tracking in both hands!
We call this example “Sweeps 101.”
(There is a very important way to approach these so every note is picked. This makes for more articulate, faster and cleaner sounding arpeggios. Many guitarists do not know this and add random legato techniques in order to deal with the irregularity of certain shapes)
The secret is in the math!
(This technique can be applied to all chord types)
Here are the 5 most common Tetra chords:
Major 7 (from B)
Dominant 7 (from B)
minor 7 (from B)
minor 7b5 (from B)
diminished 7 (from B)
Once a student is proficient at this simple “math” concept, (see .png file for pick direction), chords, tensions and meter combinations are endless!
