This lesson I'm gonna show You the arpeggio section of the song, called Scar VII from my upcoming solo album. It's not only the arpeggio, but the sweeps, tappings (with string-skipping), and other tricks involved that makes this lesson pretty intense and hard to play accurate.
The whole thing is in D minor, but You play the arpeggios on the 5th and the 6th note of the scale which are A major and Bb minor in the D harmonic minor scale.
One very good advice You should always keep in mind: practise slower, and get it faster! Very true my friends;)
