Andy Saphir con­tin­ues his chops build­ing arpeg­gio ex­er­cises with a look across the finger­board at the higher strings.

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: CHOPS SHOP -

Fol­low­ing on From last month’s lower strings ma­jor and mi­nor arpeg­gios, this month we’re fo­cus­ing on the higher strings. like last is­sue, you’ll see chord di­a­grams above the rel­e­vant arpeg­gio shape. Vi­su­al­is­ing this chord shape is a great way of recog­nis­ing the arpeg­gio pat­tern; af­ter all, an arpeg­gio is just the notes of a chord played melod­i­cally, so as­so­ci­at­ing the two makes sense. Aim to recog­nise the chord tones (root, 3rd, 5th for a ma­jor arpeg­gio, and root, b3rd, 5th for a mi­nor arpeg­gio) both vis­ually and au­rally, as this will help your fret­board skills and help to de­velop your mu­si­cal ear.
