Today I want to talk about using arpeggios in your soloing
(PRWEB) October 09, 2014
“Today I want to talk about using arpeggios in your soloing," says Johnson, “specifically the minor seven arpeggio." Claude demonstrates this concept in the key of E by incorporating the arpeggio into the minor pentatonic scale. Claude demonstrates the minor seven arpeggio as follows: 7th fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 10th fret with 4th finger to the 9th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger and finally the 7th fret of the 3rd string with first finger. “This is 4 of the 5 notes in the scale," says Johnson. Claude continues by demonstrating another arpeggio as follows; 9th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger, 8th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger, 7th fret of the first string with first finger and finally to the 10th fret with 4th finger. Claude continues by performing a variety of blues licks based out of the minor pentatonic scale combined with the arpeggios including some inversions of the arpeggio patterns. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
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."
The Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave. They can be found all over the world and are the main scale used in the Blues genre.
