Hey Alex,

Im putting together an etude to summarize some techniques Im working on, plus trying to put my synchronization to a test.
Unfortunately Im stuck with two arpeggios that I have trouble analyzing.

The general Tune is in A-minor.

Ok here is my fingering low to high for the first arpeggio: e a c a - that would be A-minor arp I would say in the 5th inversion ( 5th in root I mean).
Because I previously play: A root, a8 , c , e , a , f , c , I was wondering if the a f c would indicate an f major arp and therefor the changes so far would be : A minor F major and A minor again.

Ok after the -e a c a- I play -f a b a- which I would say is f major #4

A minor F major A minor F major#4 each for 1/2 Bar.

But then I kinda mixed those two arp for the second turn and came up with -e a b a d#- that is where I dont know.
Is it an A 9th sound ? But what does the d# indicate than , is it the final chord ??
Or a B mixolydian where the 4th descends into the 3rd

Would be glad If you could help me out and I will post you the guitar pro file as soon as Im done xD

Cheers Lixxx

Hi! It is a very nice etude to learn!
You are correct about inversion E - A - C and A - F - C Would be an inversion of F major triad
F - A - D is a D minor triad Fifth inversion not F #4

E-A-B-A-D# You can look at it as Esus4 D# will indicate harmonic minor. You can't really look at it as A because there is no third or 7!
D# used there to create a tension and resolve it in one it's a very common technique in etudes!
Let me know if you have more questions!
