Guitar Arpeggios

Rock guitar players tend to use major and minor arpeggios configurations for their sweep picking, this is not only because of there great melodic tones but also because the major and minor arpeggios are easier to execute on the guitar with the sweep picking technique (relatively speaking of course). Major and minor arpeggios are referred to as “Triad arpeggios” as they consist of 3 notes usually repeated in two or more octaves. For example, a major arpeggio is the root, 3rd and 5th note from a major scale, so in the key of C, a C major arpeggio would be the notes of C, E and G.

Here are the major, minor and a few other more difficult arpeggios in the key of C, that once mastered will open up your creative channels and set the novice guitar player on their way to guitar wizardry!

Always play slowly and cleanly until you feel comfortable and never rush through! It will do more harm than good!

These are the same 3 notes repeated through 2 octaves.

Minor scales and arpeggios include the usage of a flattened 3rd.

The fingerings for these next arpeggios may be a bit tricky but all good things come with practice and patience. The Diminished arpeggio has a flattened 3rd and 5th.

This arpeggio has a raised (or sharpened) 5th tone.

Using these arpeggios can be a simple as playing a C major arpeggio over a C major chord or a C minor arpeggio over a C minor chord and so on…but the fun doesn’t end there. As you progress and learn more theory, you will find interesting combinations to play over that don’t immediately meet the eye.
