STRING SKIPPING ARPEGGIO PATTERNS

STRING SKIPPING ARPEGGIO PATTERN.

I haven't had much time to post the last week or two, so here are some more scans from my 20 year old arch lever file of stuff I scribbled down when I was teaching myself guitar from books and magazines.

This time it's a bunch of string skipping arpeggio licks or sequences.

They are all written down, mapped out in E Major.

Musical example time...

This is the only video I have of me using string skipping arpeggios live, it's the only ever live performance of a PISTOL KIXX tune called "Triple-X"

There's a cool STRING SKIPPING ARPEGGIOS section that leads into the improvised solo. We had only rehearsed this a couple of times before playing it as an unexpected encore, so the performance is equal parts exuberant and shocking, but skip through to about 2 minutes 20 and you'll get the fun bit!

About 10 seconds of ludicrous arpeggio madness.

THE HARMONIC MINOR SCALE MAPPED OUT FOR 7 STRING GUITAR.

The HARMONIC MINOR SCALE contains the intervals: 1,2,b3,4,5,b6,7.

Much used by Yngwie Malmsteen and other neo-classical shredders.

These diagrams are for standard 7 string tuning, so B,E,A,D,G,B,E, although if you are using another tuning with same relative intervals then the movable shapes will still apply.
