Hi Harry,

Before I give you some exercises could you please post the exercise you are practicing at the moment?
Definition for Beginner level is not the same for everybody so the sooner I see what you are working on I can give you some tips and exercises.

Try this open strings excercises, you play it once with sweep picking and once with alternate picking so you can check they sound as equal as posible regardless of the way you are picking.

hi pedja

thx for your reply
definition of beginner level is good question
i have been playing for about 20 years guitar, learned all by myself so i know how to play chords
but maybe it sounds weird but i have never been really playing arpeggios

at the moment i try to learn all things from the real beginnig because i am not sure if the things how i am playing are right and i want to learn as much as possible.
i came up to a point (lets call it endpoint) of my playing, wher there was no way of moving on
so i subscribed to gmc in august

so i am not really a beginner but some of the easiest exercises are hard for me and therefore i want to start over from all of the beginning

i found this 2 exercises on the web, which i am starting now and i thought there must be much more
the lessons are at gmc are way to difficult to start with for me

so thats the reason why i was looking for some exercises to START OVER

hey gerardo
thx for your exercise

I think you should check out Joe's Appegiated Chords lessons, they really helped me. But I think these two exercises you posted would be a bit different. huh.gif Anyways, just have a look. wink.gif

Hi Harry,

Thank you for clearing things out.

These two exercises you found are standard chord progression in A natural/harmonic minor. Spanish music and Classical/shredders use this one a lot.
How have you found these exercises to be ?
I think you can learn a lot from them if you are just getting into arpeggios. Another thing is this is all Alternate picking which is another interesting way of playing arpeggios. You could try 1st exercise with Sweep picking to check out the sound of it.

I will have a look at the lessons data base and see if I can find some appropriate Arpeggio lessons.


I suggest you type in the search box Arpeggios and see what comes out in a search database!

Hope this was helpful Harry

Thanks

hi pedja

sorry for the delay but i am on business trip
thx for your answer, so you think i should start with this exercises ?

i dont really remember the website where i got them, just used google to find arpeggios and then i found this exercises
tried to find some more, but i wasnt really able to get some they look interesting for me.
but i also have to say that i didnt look very long.
i thought here are so many great instructors and they can help me with tipps and tricks

Hello Harry,
You might want to have a look at this lesson on arpeggios by Alejandro Pinero, which is part of a series of lessons.

Cheers.

Hey mate, you can always practice these lessons for some fresh ideas:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...peggios-lesson/

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/arpegg...ound-the-chord/

The second one is a bit fast maybe, but you can practice it anyway, check out the GP file and work it out in a slower tempo.

thx Muris
this one i have done while running with MTP and i still use it from time to time

my problem with arpeggios is that i have read that you dont grab them like a chord, you should use different fingerings
on open chords it seems to be easier than somewhere else on the fretboard

thx for the answers
when i am back home from trip i will have a closer look to the presented exercises

I think it's REALLY important to know what you're playing, and where it fits in. "arpeggio 1 and 2" doesn't really give you a clue at all, it's just a grinding pattern.

Rather learn to play Major arpeggios, maj 7, min7 etc. search the lessons of the page. example is muris' sweep+tap lesson. It looks really advanced, but that doesn't matter. Learn the sweeps, disregard the taps (or include, up to you).

Then you'll learn patterns that can be used in jamming, and you'll know where because you know its name.

Hope this makes sense.

hi kjutte

thats the problem, it doesnt make sense to me at the moment, because i dont really understand "arpeggios"
thats why i call myself a "beginner" in this section
one thing i figured out by practicing the ones i have so far, it helps me a lot with my fingerings and i think i my fingerskills improve daily, no matter that they are from spanish folk or whatever, and it also helps to find complete new ways of sound to me because i always just played straight powerchords in main.
i know the main chords but i need to build up skill for bigger chords (7th, 9th ....) as well
oh my god i have to learn so much and sometimes i really dont know where to start .......
i have read so many things about arpeggios and thats one thing i was never really playing and thats why i thought i need to start with that from the REALLY beginning.......

cya

ps: i found another thing from arpeggios, what you think about that guys ?

That's a very useful article, and I think by going through all those exercises, you will improve arpeggio technique very much mate.

An arpeggio is just a chord played one note at a time.
A chord is usually something like 1 3 5 7 note of a scale.

So the answer is, learn the scale you want, and automatically gain knowledge of all the possible chords + arpeggios in it.
Only limitation is creativity smile.gif

If you need further explanation feel free to ask.

Edit:
That's a great article. Basically those chords are from each of the 7 degrees of the majorscale.

The majorscale is essential, and I would always recommend to learn it first.

Move a note, get harmonic minor, move two notes, get melodic minor.
Remove two notes, and get pentatonic.

If you know the majorscale, you can pretty easily learn most other stuff alot easier smile.gif

hi again

sorry for the misinterpretation
i understand what triads/arpeggios are made of ( 1 3 5 7 ....), and i am on the way to get more into major and minor scales
the difficulty for me is to find the right notes without counting them and then the "right" fingerings

i have read that you have to use different fingerings than just grab the chord and thats exactly the point where i think i need to start, if there are any other suggestions your all welcome to help me :-))

i still need to look at the recommended links in this thread, but as far as i know from Muris´s lessons :-)) they are mostly way to hard for me and mostly much to fast
i really have problems building up speed .........

ok thats it for so far
