Watch the Jazz: Technique 2 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from RhythmCraft

Arpeggiating this chord progression is going to define the time signature that we are playing and help to pull out specific voices from within our chords. The time signature is 12/8, which means we are playing 12 eighth notes per bar of music, or 3 eighth notes per beat. We are going to play through the chord changes with the pick and/or fingers accentuating the 12 beats. This arpeggio approach would work really well against the previous "spreads" and "skank" part as it would drive the rhythmic pulse. If you ever play with a keyboard player and they are playing block chord pads, arpeggios are a great complementary part for you to play regardless of musical genre.
