Skippin' Strings - Arpeggios & Etude

Chris Feener 256 lessons

String skipped arpeggios are a staple in neo-classical shred and have been since the 80's. This approach is very ala Paul Gilbert. It offers a way to access a wide array of cool arpeggios without the "sloppy" effect of sweeping. We'll begin by breaking down two minor arpeggio shapes as well as two major arpeggio shapes. Be sure to examine each arpeggio and where the root as well as third of each is located, this will unlock the ability to incorporate these arpeggios into your own sequences more quickly and efficiently. From here, we'll move on to an "Etude" incorporating some of these arpeggios.
