Arpeggios Guitar Tuition Course

Part 1 

First Arpeggio


An ARPEGGIO is playing a series of notes in order.

This file gives an introduction to arpeggios and is a simple exercise for both hands.

The following diagrams illustrate arpeggios in the key of G using the top three strings. 

Once you have mastered this exercise you can use the same technique to play arpeggios over any chord sequence.

These are exercises NOT proper arpeggios. 

A real arpeggio is playing the notes of the triad of chord in order.
