The guitar lesson taught by Darrin Goodman is based on three string arpeggios in both the major and minor voicing’s based on the notes from the major scale. Darrin explains that these can be played over a chord progression to really fill them out. The chord voicing’s in which the arpeggios are played over do not have to be full voiced chords, such as major or minor but can be played over dyads such as root and fifth power chords. Goodman breaks the arpeggio shapes down and demonstrates the technique both slowly and at tempo so that it is easy to follow along with. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy lead 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 major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music. The eighth duplicates the first at double its frequency so that it is called a higher octave of the same note, which its name is derived from Latin "octavus," the eighth.
Darrin Goodman, a native of Ogden, Utah, began playing guitar at the age of 12 after hearing KISS at an earlier age. Darrin has been a local finalist for the King of the Blues contest and is the lead guitarist of international recording artist Sonic Prophecy who has performed with artists such as Accept, Sabaton Cinderella and Ratt.
