In this riff, I have come up
with a concept of going to a higher note before completing the actual arpeggio,
then doing the regular arpeggio. In this example only 5th string
root minor and major arpeggios are used. Sweep picking must be utilized to gain
high speed to play this chop at its full value.
G Major Arpeggio, Root 2
[ ptb |
This is your basic 5th
string root G major arpeggio. This is where sweep picking will have to be
utilized. As you can see, the first pick is a down pick, then a hammer-on and
then you sweep that down-pick all the way to the top E string.
Am Arpeggio [
The A minor arpeggio is a 5th
string root minor arpeggio. You should watch the video to see how I maneuver my
hand and roll the 3rd finger so that none of the notes ring out
Diminished Arpeggios [
Another famous arpeggio is
the diminished arpeggios. Shown in the tab, we are only doing the 3 string
sweeps to get a real fast sweeping sound like Malmsteen.
