Arrow [Lesson] Seven String Arpeggios Part II

Part One Of This Lesson is Here

Continuing with arpeggios for the seven, assuming you've got a basic grasp of inversions and triads. Again, these are movable. These arpeggios start in B minor, with a little fun towards the end as we move into part 3. This exercise shows how you can use various fingerings at any time within a similar neck position.

As a side note, I'll have fingerings up for these ASAP, this weekend if I have time.

B min -> G maj

A maj -> F# min

G maj -> E min

-> C# dim

Amp: 6505+ / Recto 4x12s
Rack: Axe-Fx II / HD1221s

These are cool little excercises, Chris. I use these alot actually, ever since I have studied the way Eric Johnson does his arpeggios, I've incorporated them into my playing.

cool sweeps, did you use guitar pro for them? it looks like it, but there might be other programs like it so thats why im asking. if you have a GP file for these, and tbh for any other lesson, it would be appreciated if you could post it somewhere

people put their gear in their sigs, so i might too.
