Hey all GuitarJoolz here and welcome to my latest course "Arpeggios for Guitar made Easy". Here you will find an easy way to learn arpeggios on guitar. By starting with triads and building upon them and adding them slowly to you guitar playing with the aid of exercises and jam tracks.

Arpeggios are basically chord patterns where the notes are played separately. This makes them so useful and essential for learning chords in different positions along the guitar neck, for understanding what notes to target in a guitar solo and also for creating ear pleasing melodies and licks. You can learn to play arpeggios all over the guitar neck more easily than most think.

It is not a subject that can be covered in a 20 minute section of an "all in one guitar course". It's a whole course, hence this one is 3 hours long, covers major, minor and touches on diminished/sevenths. I have carefully structured the course as you would in a "real" learning scenario, nothing is left out, there is no guess work and you will learn methodically, a little at a time until you fully understand the concepts. The subject is covered in total detail and you are also shown how to construct all of the patterns, with tab, note charts, interval charts, octave patterns, MP3 jam tracks all on screen and with downloads too!

You'll be learning arpeggios that can be used for jazz, blues, rock, metal, pop etc

There are many techniques in the course, ones you will be able to apply musically;  triplet and quadruplets patterns, all major and minor patterns and their inversions up and down the neck in 3,4,5 note per string patterns (i don't just give you the shapes! You have a strict regime to apply to a jam track that can be used in real life), arpeggio patterns following chord progressions, rock soloing ideas, neo-classical techniques, sweeps and pedal points, jazz ideas with passing tones, diminished and seventh shapes and also chordal ideas in the style of Rock and Pop bands such as Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kings of Leon, Strokes etc.

If you are questioning, "Is this course for me"? Well, it's for everyone, it assumes one has no knowledge of arpeggios at all and slowly shows all the steps needed to become advanced in their application. The course is not aimed solely at rock or jazz guitarists, its for everyone to apply these awesome techniques! Comprehensive explanations, clear examples, and slow breakdown (with on screen TAB and Standard Notation) in full HD closeups make it impossible not to have success! 

This course is about the learner, not the instructor and i don't play a load of fancy licks to show off my skills and then say "now you try after downloading a tab"! It's complete, structured and learner focussed.

Take this course if;

- You want to fully comprehend TRIADS, one of the most important building blocks of all guitar playing.

- You want to understand how to play chords everywhere and want to be able to do it without the CAGED system.

- You don't know where to start with guitar soloing and melody creation and learn to play arpeggios on guitar for both rhythm and lead work.

- You are stuck in a rut with your playing and want to add some 'spice' to your licks.

- You want to understand the fundamentals of sweep picked arpeggios.

- You can play arpeggios but don't know how to apply or construct anything with them.

- You simply want to learn some fancy licks!

- You play music that requires twin guitar parts

- You want to understand the concepts of music harmony and triad construction.

- You like structure, jam tracks, full tab and a course that actually feels like having private lessons from a time served and dedicated guitar teacher.

Who this course is for:
  • Guitarists wanting to learn and, more importantly "understand and use" arpeggios
  • Those of you who want to break out of the same tired old patterns
  • Guitarists who want to open up and understand the entire fretboard
  • Those wanting freedom up and down the guitar neck
  • Anyone that wants to understand how target the "right" notes and/or create harmony

Using our 3 note per string patterns over our first jam track with a quadruplet pattern and a chord inversion technique.

Study 1

Here we take our inversions in C major key up a little higher in order to learn the fretboard in totality.

Study 2

In this study we extend our patterns to 4 notes over 3 strings and start to stretch the shapes, prepare to get your pinky involved!

Study 3

Patterns variations.

Study 4

Time to get more inventive now with an extended chord progression in a Gary Moore/Ritchie Blackmore style with triplet picking and the addition of a diminished arpeggio.

Study 5

Changing up the inversion and extending our patterns over the same jam track.

Preview 07:53

Forward picking of our patterns.

Study 7

Forward picking with extended patterns in different inversions.

Study 8

A slowing of pace here to check out some chordal ideas and variations.

Study 9

Chordal work continued over our new jam track.

Study 10

A cool "classical" pedal point idea over a rock style jam track using four string arpeggio patterns.

Study 11

Ok, here we start to really put thing together with a wicked little solo study over our rock track. This is a good way to really see how we use the shapes in a real song scenario. After editing i decided this one was pretty trick so i included a simplified idea too!

Study 12

A little break to learn all our full 5 string patterns for Jedi guitar powers!

Full 5 String Shapes

So this is a new jam track and where the course starts to really get challenging. Full 5 string shapes in triplets here, i leave gaps at the end of the bar to make life a little easier when shifting positions.

Study 13

New patterns here, different inversions and more work to do!

Study 14

We begin to round up the course but putting together all that we have learned here, over a latin jazz style jam track with some cool ideas in the vain of Django/Al Di Meola. These will work with rock and pop too though!
