Watch the Diminished Ideas online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from Shred Ahead Blues Rock
Like the sequential approach to the arpeggio or scale the intervallic approach is recognized as a technique that shows technical ability in the player. Here we break the diminished arpeggio into minor thirds, the interval or distance of three frets. Again we notice the equal distance between each note, the minor third. In this example we descend but it is also a common practice to ascend using this technique.
