In this lesson we are going to focus on beginner string skipping and arpeggio concepts. An example of this lesson will be a classic rock solo, so I can demonstrate how and where we can use these concepts effectively, as opposed to solely practicing them.
String skipping and arpeggios both involve different approach to playing than note-by-note sequences. We as players have tendency sometimes to use note-by-note sequences, as a logical result of practicing this way. But if we focus on larger interval jumps, are playing will get a dose of freshness and with proper arpeggio usage - it will connect to the music better too.
As said, this lesson only scratches the surface. There are many ways to use string skipping, and arpeggios - both are very wide topics. In this lesson we are dealing with simplest of string skipping licks - based on minor pentatonic pattern, and simplest of arpeggios - based mostly on G and C major and A minor triad patterns.
Have fun! :)
