It’s important to learn both 8th-note and 16th-note arpeggios. Often, arpeggiated melodies are a mixture of 8th and 16th notes.

Now that we’ve played the rhythm with a metronome, let’s put it to a chord progression. For our first example, we’ll use the familiar key of G.

It’s a great idea to play this rhythm with a metronome. To achieve true mastery, it’s best to play it with a metronome that clicks on every 16th note (1-e-&-a-2-e-&-a-3…), AND try it when the metronome is clicking only on the main numbers (i.e., the quarter notes…1-2-3-4).
