Ex­am­ple 3 non­chord tones …CON­TIN­UED

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Creative Rock -

If you’ve fol­lowed this se­ries on neo- clas­si­cal rock so far, you’ll see that we are merely play­ing dif­fer­ent in­ver­sions of the same arpeg­gios si­mul­ta­ne­ously: be­cause tri­adic arpeg­gios are based on stacked 3rds, one in­ver­sion higher is the

≥≥ same as a 3rd higher, and two in­ver­sions higher is the same as a 6th higher. It is for this rea­son that 3rds and 6ths are also in­ver­sions of each other: play­ing a 3rd higher will pro­duce the same notes as when play­ing a 6th lower (only they will be an oc­tave apart); con­versely, play­ing a 6th higher will gen­er­ate the same notes as

≥≥ a 3rd lower; (al­though, again, they will be in a dif­fer­ent oc­tave).
