    Hey guys, how are You?

    P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; }[FONT=Calibri, serif]I'm sorry, I'm not a native english speaker[FONT=Calibri, serif]. [FONT=Calibri, serif]T[/FONT][/FONT]his text may contain some mistakes. [/FONT]

    I've decided that I wanted to help people around the world that wants to learn a little about improvisation or learn how to improve their composing so I created this guitar pro file as well with a pdf file with some 7th arpeggios (tetrad arpeggios, I don't know how You call it in US or Uk, I'm sorry).

    Keep in mind that there are many of these arpeggios that You can create using intervals but I find these 5th string shapes interesting to start with Your studies.

    I've wrote a note in the guitar pro file but for any of You that doesn't use guitar pro I'm going to write over here:

    P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; } [FONT=Calibri, serif]-These arpeggios can be used combined with power [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]chords. I like to use often when playing metal music(You can use it in any style, [/FONT][FONT=Calibri, serif]though).[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]- The great magic behind tetrad chords / arpeggios are [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]exactly the chords. If You create a good harmony in [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]Your song or backing track You will be able to create [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]a good phrasing. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]If You want to study a good way to create a guitar solo [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]combining technique and feeling You can try to use [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]this chord progression : Am7 - F7M - G7 (This is one of [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]the most used progressions in rock music)[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]- Check the section 2 marker. There are some [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, serif]phrasing.[/FONT]

    Another thing I want to say is that these arpeggios are in the Cmaj7 Harmonic field. In my country we call it "Campo harmônico". I can't find the real translation to it . The best translation was "field". I hope I wrote the right term.
    You can play in any field You like after You understand the basic concept of playing in Cmaj7 field.




    [FONT=Calibri, serif]I hope You enjoy this lesson.[/FONT]



    [FONT=Calibri, serif]Cheers![/FONT]

    Rock on. I've been obsessed with that minor 7 for a few years now... Such a fluid and fun thing to play around with.

    It is. The sevenths in general are really nice for leading into (or out of) melodic lines, bends, scale runs, you name it!

    The JP style concept of repeating 2 string patterns an octave up over three octaves also works really nicely for the seventh arps. It makes it easy to incorporate that fast, staccato alternate picked sound into the runs.
