Improve Your Guitar Technique With These 3 Arpeggios

When I think back to what helped develop my skills and fluidity on the guitar the most, the answer has to be arpeggios. Over the years I have played these handy patterns literally thousands of times in many different variations and they’ve become deeply ingrained in my playing. I’m very excited to be sharing with you the same patterns I first learned all that time ago!

The minor 7th arpeggio is closely related to the minor pentatonic scale, so that’s a great place to start! From there, you need only change one note at a time to access the different colours of the dominant 7th and major 7th arpeggios.

Along the way you’ll also learn some tips on fingering these particular patterns, as well as a few different ideas on how to pick them. I hope you can find these arpeggios as useful and beneficial as I did!
