Finally, we uncover new melodic possibilities by combining earlier techniques, such as hammer-ons and pull-offs, with our new arpeggio technique. The result is soooo musical and captivating!

Let’s now change the top string with each arpeggio pass. The result is a beautiful alternating melody on the high end of the chords.

The possibilities are endless when you combine arpeggio patterns with embellished chords. You will love creating your own songs and melodies using these new ideas!

The intro and verse to this legendary song features a creative use of arpeggios.

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

This is a wonderful song to demonstrate the use of arpeggios. Here we play memorable melodies using very familiar chord shapes.

Now we can combine arpeggio patterns with strumming patterns to create even more interesting possibilities with our chord progressions.

Playing arpeggios in time takes some practice, and here we discuss a couple simple exercises that help us get comfortable playing them with a sense of time and rhythm.

Arpeggios are really just chords played one note at a time instead of strummed all at once. This technique allows you to play melodies and harmony all at once, and there’s no end to how creative you can get with it.
