The backing track uses a classically inspired chord progression: Am - Dm - G - C - F - Bdim - E - Am, which cycles through all the diatonic chords in the key of A minor. We'll work out over the backing track by following the chords using string skipping arpeggios in a variety of ways. First, descending each arpeggio shape all the way through the progression, then second, alternating between descending and ascending arpeggio shapes.
