Arpeggios you've discovered

I've been scouring the internet for some great arpeggios. What better place to find arpeggios then here ?

Here is a site I've discovered :

I discovered C major. It has my flag in it and everything. It now belongs to the commonwealth of Adam.

Learn the construction of an arpeggio and you can realise as many arpeggio voicings as exist.

You can find a ton of them playing around with the scales if you're not looking to sweep them across 6 strings on the first go. I find a lot of small ones when I'm trying to phrase and they can be a nice little segway to your next lick rather than doing a 3nps scalar run.

If you figure out small ones within modes you can then take those notes and space them out over octaves to make it sound really cool too.

For sweep patterns couldn't you do something akin to just taking out every other note in a scale pattern?

In, all honesty I don't know how a arpeggio is constructed. If you would like to help me you are more then welcome to. Thanks

Essentially, an arpeggio is the notes of a chord played not harmonically (when written down, the notes are above/below eachother - they sound at the same time) but melodically (the notes are written next to eachother, they sound one after another).

Take your regular major seventh arpeggio, let's take Cmaj7 for simplicity (the notes are 1,3,5,7:C,E,G,B). You could play it like this, but, of course, one could also play 5-3-7-1. Maybe 3-5-3-7-1! Mind you, these are not frets I'm talking about but the degrees of the arpeggio. This is what was meant by using different inversions and voicings of the arpeggio: you could play it with the third being the root (root meaning lowest note here, not talking about the tonic), you could play it across seven octaves, you name it. As long as we have the notes C,E,G,B resolving to the C, we have a Cmaj7. Arpeggios are just ways we play things like these.

(I'm sure some of my fellow theorists here know more about this than me, but I tried to explain the essence of it.)

I like minor sevenths. One of my songs has this phrasing of Gm7:
Code:
E|-15p13-------------------------------------------|
B|-------15----------------------------------15h18-|
G|----------15----------------------------15-------|
D|-------------17p15----------------15h17----------|
A|-------------------17----------17----------------|
E|----------------------18-15h18-------------------|
One 4/4 bar of 16th notes. It's not exactly novel. It's literally every chord tone of Gm7 in perfect order. But it sounds nice.

Later in that same song, I play another Gm7, but with tapping:
Code:
E|----------t--------t--------------t-----------t--|
B|----t-----18-------15----------t--18-------t--15-|
G|----15-------12-------t--------15----------12----|
D|-------12-------------15----12-------15----------|
A|-10-------------13-------10-------------13-------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|
Of course, it sounds better with other arpeggiated chords and good voice leading between them.

...?!

"Major 7#5" and "minor major 7" arps are good.

Eb maj7#5 and Emin maj 7 work with "A blues scale" tonality

Also B augmented arps and A diminished work well in "A blues"

A cool Lydian arp is ascending 5ths starting on F all the way up to B

When I was younger I learned all of the standard sweep shapes, plus 7th chord patterns. Then eventually I ran into George Bellas' style of arpeggios which is pretty unique. Mostly I am referring to 4 string arpeggio shapes that have no hammer/pulls...like at about 5:00 in this song:

Some of the most beautiful arpeggios ever played were played by Jason Becker.

^Jason Becker is an inspiration, and not just guitarwise. The man can't move a single muscle (actually, I recently picked up somewhere he could move three muscles now - let's hope he gets better) yet still responds to pretty much every comment or question on his forum.

The new Carvin Jason Becker is pretty awesome too.
