Hey guys,

here´s another cool guitar lesson from Rob Compagna.

He will teach you the basic 2 octaves arpeggio shapes you should know!

Like minor 7, dominant, diminished, etc…

Hope it helps!

Hey, it’s Rob Compagna for guitarcontrol.com and today we
are going to learn about two octave arpeggios. These are
going to be played over different chords. So we’re going
to do these over a B flat major 7, B flat dominant 7, B
flat minor 7, B flat minor 7 flat 5 and B flat diminished.

All we’ve got to do is match-up the arpeggio with the
corresponding chord. The first chord, as we said, is a
B flat major 7 and that arpeggio is… So when a B flat
major 7 is being played, play that arpeggio.

Likewise, with the following arpeggio. So here we have
a B flat dominant 7, which is the same as the B flat
major 7 arpeggio except that the 7, instead of an A,
is now an A flat. So here is that one.

Then our next chord is a B flat minor 7. This one is
different in that now we have a minor 3rd instead of a
major 3rd. So we go from the D down to a D flat. So this
arpeggio is a lot like a pentatonic minor scale except
we’re missing the 4th, which is an E flat here.
So there it is.

All right, so the next chord is a B flat minor 7.
This one is different in that the 5th drops from an
F to an F flat, which is anharmonically the same as
an E. So all that means is it’s different names for
the same note. So this one is like this…
I love that arpeggio.

All right, the last one is B flat diminished, another
great sounding arpeggio that works great when playing
over dominant 7 chords.

So those are our two-octave arpeggios. The other great
thing about these arpeggios I showed you is so that when
playing 16th notes they fit neatly in one full measure.
So it’s pretty great when you’ve got a chord that’s one
full measure long and you can just rip over it.

I hope you enjoyed these arpeggios. You can look at
the PDF files on the link that’s in the description
for the video so you have all of the tabs for what
I just showed you. Anyway, I hope you have a great
day and thanks for logging into guitarcontrol.com.
Take care.
