I had a lot of fun with this lead guitar lesson! Guitar arpeggios are often overlooked by many guitar players because they think they’re only used in a specific context. But that couldn’t be more wrong! Guitar arpeggios can be the perfect addition to your soloing toolkit, no matter what kind of genre you play!
Guitar arpeggio shapes are not just for sweeping or for waltz-y ballads. In the video I’ll show you how they fit in a minor blues situation and I think you’ll really dig the results! We start with playing a chunk of the “A minor” arpeggio and use that pattern while also playing the minor pentatonic scale.
I break down each guitar arpeggio pattern and show you what chords in the backing track to play them over. This way, you’ll play the right notes 100% of the time!! After all, all guitar arpeggio shapes are just broken up chords! So when you play them over the right chord, it’s literally impossible to play the “wrong” notes!
Since this is a lead guitar lesson, here’s the bonus link to the other one of my videos showing you some SCORCHING hot blues licks that’ll pair perfectly with your new arpeggio licks, as promised: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHbmhQP_cgk
By the end of this video you’ll be able to take guitar arpeggio shapes, make them bluesy and expressive, and play them with a band or backing tracks all day and night!
The important thing to practice is knowing WHEN to play the proper guitar arpeggios over the proper chords. This backing track will get you started with it and you can apply the same licks elsewhere that the same chords are played.
