Se­quenced arpeg­gio tap­ping lick

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

This month’s lick is a se­quenced arpeg­gio idea loved by Greg Howe. It sounds cool and works great! It’s based on a de­scend­ing and as­cend­ing tapped triplet pat­tern us­ing notes from an A ma­jor arpeg­gio (A-C#-E). It’s chal­leng­ing to play, es­pe­cially cleanly and fast. Han­dling noise and fret­ting-hand ham­merons that are not loud enough are key ar­eas to watch. To com­bat han­dling noise you can use a fret-wrap or hair tie around the 1st fret; but if you play ac­cu­rately and mute of­fend­ing strings the re­sult will be worth it. Af­ter play­ing through it as writ­ten, work on ideas of your own us­ing dif­fer­ent types of arpeg­gio in a sim­i­lar man­ner, then ap­ply these ideas to var­i­ous chord pro­gres­sions. It’s a fun chal­lenge!
