Hi there Joe Kataldo here with another installment of I Got Rhythm Guitar, today the spotlight is on Arpeggiated chords Today and for the next four lessons, we will analyze and practice in a musical way the most common patterns from simple to complex.
This Lesson Will Improve
Arpeggiated Rhythm Patterns
Play Chord Progression
Arpeggiated Chords I
This is the easiest one, where all the notes were played in sequences, from the lowest one to the highest, the picking motion is not the constant alternate one you are accustomed to, but follow the same rules of economy picking, you will change from Down picking to Up picking only when you have to change direction. This may feel a little bit odd in the begin, but trust me is the most flawless method to play arpeggiated parts, specially in live situations.
The picking pattern for this lesson is constant: DOWN - DOWN - DOWN - UP
The Progression is:
D - Dsus2 - Dsus4 - D
F/D - G/D - D Dsus4 - D
D - Dsus2 - Dsus4 - D
G/D - A/D - D Dsus4 - D
An Arpeggiated Chord is one where the notes are played one at the time in a melodic way, rather than strumming in an harmonic way.
Chords embellishment are created usually adding notes from the parent scale to a basic chord shape:
D major scale
D Major triad
Dsus4 - a DMajor triad embellished with the 4th in place of the major 3rd
You will find a big use of arpeggiated chord progression in Pop Music, I'll leave you the choice of your favorite singer
See you next lesson with some more complex appeggiated patterns
