“Today I want to show you some arpeggio exercises that will help you chops in ways you can’t even imagine”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates these easy minor arpeggio exercises on the first two strings as follows; 5th fret of the 2nd string with first finger played as a down stroke to the 5th fret of the first string with first finger played as a down stroke to the 8th fret with 4th finger played as an up stroke and then a pull-off back to the 5th fret. This sequence should be played repeatedly while trying to build up speed. Next Claude moves up a position to an inversion as follows; 10th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger to the 8th fret of the first string with first finger to the 12th fret with 4th finger picked the same as the first example. And finally the second inversion; 13th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger to the 12th fret of the first string with first finger to the 17th fret with 4th finger, played the same as the first two examples.

An arpeggio is when the notes of a chord are played separately in a sequence. The word comes from the Italian word apeggiare which means “to play on a harp”.
