EX­AM­PLES DI­A­TONIC ARPEG­GIOS

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

EX­AM­PLE 1 All 12 ex­am­ples shown here are based around the three-notes-per-string pat­tern #1 of A Mixoly­dian (see diagram 1). Make sure that you ap­ply ex­actly the same ap­proach to all of the other three-notes-per-string pat­terns too. ex­am­ple 1 in­volves as­cend­ing us­ing the first of our 24 per­mu­ta­tions (1-2-3-4), which results in a straight­for­ward as­cent of each arpeg­gio shape. Here, we are trav­el­ling up through the scale, play­ing each of the di­a­tonic arpeg­gios in se­ries.

EX­AM­PLE 2 next, we use the 4-3-2-1 per­mu­ta­tion to de­scend each arpeg­gio shape and take this scheme up through the scale. Once you’ve learned these as ex­er­cises, you can be­gin to in­cor­po­rate them more mu­si­cally in your play­ing.

EX­AM­PLE 3 By al­ter­nat­ing be­tween 1-2-3-4 and 4-3-2-1 per­mu­ta­tions, we get to move up through the se­ries of arpeg­gios by play­ing up one arpeg­gio and then down the next. Again, you’ll soon be mak­ing it sound less ex­er­cise-like.
