Practicing ARPEGGIOS Over a Loop Pedal – How To Use Arpeggios In Your Guitar Solos – Guitar Lesson

Hey, how’s it going this is Sean Daniel with Guitar Control, we’re going to talk a little bit about today using arpeggios with a looper pedal. So all I did there was a loop to two chord thing and then I learned an arpeggio for the 1st four that we’re going to play over both of them in the same key. I think it sounds great and it’s great practice and it keeps you on time and it does wonders for your soul.

Click on the Tabs button to follow chords and tabs.

So that loop right there sounded a little bit of the C major 7 chord to an A minor 11. So in the key of C that is the root chord the one chord to the relative minor, so they kind of a pretty closely related kind of a jazzier way to play a C major to A minor, you can do the all the same stuff over those two chords but you know the C major 7 chord voicing right that one was 3 of A-string, 5 of the D-string, 4 on the G- string pinky on the B-string that’s kind of finger silent and cue this chord voicing, great chord voicing.

You don’t know that you keep your ring finger right where it was but your metal finger is the 5th fret low E-string ring finger is 5th fret, D string pinky on your 5th fret, G-string and your pointer finger on the 3rd fret to the B-string going back between those C to A. Now when you play the absolute we’re going to work on it going over the scoop with a C arpeggio alright so that wasn’t a regular arpeggio were just like up and down gradually going to do a little bit of movement in this arpeggio. Arpeggios just when you play a note or chord one note at a time so a lot of this is going to be based around the shape that we just learned.

So we’re going to start with your ring finger to hammer-on the 5th fret and then slide 5 to 7 this is arpeggiated one note at a time, way to get from the root note of the chord to the 3rd of the chord that’s the rest of it. So after this 3, 5, 7, using your ring finger allows you to line up your pointer finger with the string down five D straight out again right there we end up on the major 7 of that chord if you see what happened to 3A, 5A, 7A, 5D, 5G, 4G, you know that no kind of pops out of you right because that’s the note from the chord voicing that we just use it kind of makes that C major 7 or special back.

Now we’re just going to go right back to your middle finger 5D slide 7 and then back to 5 so all together all right so you know it’s some people consider the lick more than arpeggio I just think it’s kind of like using the notes in a chord to make something interesting up, so that way when you have a loop you can use any of those notes to make the sound good.

Now I’m just kind of dancing around at the end, best sequence that we did sometimes I’ll play it straight faster you play it the same thing slow at the same tempo even changed position below is room. Lot of the things she can do this by as a noisy to sound good over in this particular chord progression, so well that’s kind of do something else for the A chord to.

This shall be just another simple ish arpeggio but we’re going to change lastly keep the finger that we’ve use, so the root note of A is the 5th fret of the E-string, now just playing an E minor chord slide three frets out from A to C and then after this we can actually jump into that same link that we did that same arpeggio that we wanted to do from the C who just connects them or we can go on to an A minor arpeggio, so this is going to be the other edge of this link in that tab 5E to 8E, 7A to 7B to 5D these 3 here and then you might want to add you back on like the fifth of the chord so over that A something like that we can kind of combine that with then now we’re connecting to arpeggios together and they’re all going to sound good over of his backing track because we just have those two chords at the C part to the A part.

Again there’s an infinite amount of ways that you can use this kind of playing all right I think that arpeggio bass playing is a great way to really kind of find your way through the fret board instead of learning steel shapes and maybe kind of stay static the beautiful thing about our pleasure is that they can move around look we do the same thing on different chord shapes but I really think the practicing with we provided was super important so if you don’t have a looper pedal get yourself a loop or paddle think of other exercises you might want to see here on the guitar control channel and we’ll definitely check it out always open your feedback so think of what you I see let us know in the comment section and in the meantime until we get working on that video check out other videos we have on the channel by myself other great instructors here on the guitar control channel and make sure to subscribe on our YouTube Channel and we’ll see you in our next video lessons, thanks for watching.
