ARPEGGIOS FOR THE MODERN GUITARIST, The Complete Guide, Including Theory, Patterns, Techniques and Applications. CD TABLATURE

Series: Guitar Educational
Author: Stephen Ross

Using this no-nonsense book/CD pack, guitarists will learn to apply and execute all types of arpeggio forms using a variety of techniques, including alternate picking, sweep picking, tapping, string skipping, and legato. This is not just another arpeggio book, but a methodical approach to expanding your skills as a guitarist - and as a musician!



Why this book?
OK, so here's another book on arpeggios. What makes this one different from the others? Most arpeggio
books I have seen focus primarily on forms with little information on how to play them effectively. In this
book, the forms given are designed around certain techniques such as sweep picking, alternate picking, legato
playing, two-hand tapping, and multi-finger tapping. If you can play one form well using one particular technique,
you should not have too much trouble playing the other forms well using that same technique.
Many musicians think of arpeggios as an intermediate to advanced topic-and they're right! To use this book
effectively, you should understand what scales and modes are, know how to play and transpose them in
different keys, understand basic chord theory, and have some knowledge of meter and rhythm.
An arpeggio book must teach the student arpeggio forms and show how to execute and apply them. The challenge
in creating a successful text is carefully blending and balancing these topics.
1. Learning arpeggio forms: To learn arpeggio forms effectively, they must be organized in a
structured and logical manner. This book organizes arpeggios by tonality and harmonic complexity.
The tonality of the arpeggio is simply designated as major, dominant, minor, diminished,
or augmented. Harmonic complexity is closely related to the number of notes in the
chord formula; for example, a Gmaj13 arpeggio is considered more harmonically complex than a G major.
To make memorizing arpeggio forms easier, forms that are harmonically complex are sometimes
built by stacking basic forms; for example, seventh arpeggios, which have four-note
chord formulas, can be built by stacking three-note triad forms. This approach is utilized
quite frequently throughout the text.
2. Playing arpeggio forms: This book integrates practice tips and execution notes throughout
each chapter. Techniques covered in this book include alternate picking, sweep picking, hammer-
ons and pull-offs, two-hand tapping, and string skipping.
3. Application: Integrating arpeggios into your playing style is the part of the process that
takes the longest amount of time, but is also the most rewarding. By the time you are finished
with this book, you should be well on your way to integrating the arpeggio forms illustrated
in this book as well as your own into your playing style
