Watch the Arpeggios: Level 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Triad Arpeggios
Workout #2 kicks continues your first impression with a series of arpeggios in the following order: Major, augmented, minor and diminished. This collection is based off a 2nd inversion vision where the lowest note is the 5th of each chord type.
The first two sets of four bars - major and augmented - will have the arpeggios descending in major 3rds, which sounds great with moving major and augmented textures. The remaining two sets will have them descending in minor 3rds, which better compliments minor and diminished. Keep mind the my intent for you to be aware of the root of the arpeggio throughout your Workout. To do that I made each each lick starts and ends on the root of every last arpeggio you play here in Level 1!
In order to have the root be the first and last note you play in each bar the note sequence had to be changed. Good thing: One of the main goals in this installment of the Guitar Gym series is to not only work your arpeggio chops, but also to best get you ready to make your own music with arpeggios.
