Watch the Turning Chords Into Arpeggios online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from Bebop Improv Survival Guide

Any chord can be turned into an arpeggio.

For now lets start with simple 4 note arpeggios. Once that is comfortable feel free to create arpeggios of 5,6, 7 (or more!) notes. Eventually you want to build arpeggios that LAY on top of your chords and convey the sound of that chord.

For guitarists this is essential. Try to visualize the arpeggio as laying on top of the chord, and eventually the scale as laying on top of the arpeggio. That way chord /arpeggio/scale are all connected visually, physically and eventually musically! {CHART}
