Mastering Arpeggios PDF with ppti.info - Download as PDF File .pdf), Text File MASTERING ARPEGGIOS A DELUXE CRASH COURSE IN GUITAR THEORY. GUITAR ARPEGGIO STUDIES. Z S T A. D. [-: his book is all about the exciting world of arpeggios! l l. LJ. Arpeggios are the notes that make up any given chord.

The print version is a high-quality, perfect-bound, crisply-printed, page book. The eBook version is an instantly-downloadable, searchable PDF not scanned from print or anything nasty like that.

You can now get the most comprehensive, complete scale and arpeggio book ever published for guitar completely free! There are many commercial books on the market that call themselves scale or arpeggio "encyclopedias", but there are no good ones.

Most of them just repeat the same few dozen scales as all the rest. A lot contain impractical or partial fingerings; some even have no diagrams at all.

Many have confusing or incorrect explanations and analysis; that's if they have any at all. Some just cash in on a famous guitarist's name or hope you'll buy them because they come with a useless CD of examples.

This book was written in frustration at the existence of so many poor-quality books. I'm a professional teacher, not a music publisher, so I can afford to spend 20 years researching and experimenting to produce the best-quality book available. I can also afford to let you download it for free, because frankly I'd rather have people use it.

I'd be delighted if you bought a paper copy -- I get a couple of bucks for each one sold, so it would help me out. If you choose not to, though, that's OK. The Contents Arpeggio and Scale Resources is divided into three parts: a short first part called "Fundamentals" and much longer second and third parts containing the advanced resources that make up most of the book.

Part I: Fundamentals Part 1 is dedicated to covering the basics very thoroughly. It takes up the first 60 pages and contains the following chapters, which are designed to be studied in order: An explanation of basic scale theory, giving precise definitions to terms such as "gamut", "scale", "root note", "mode", "interval" and so on. Full CAGED fingerings for the triad arpeggios with an introduction to the CAGED system and information about how to learn and use them Full CAGED fingerings for the seventh arpeggios with some classic jazz applications Full CAGED fingerings for all of the modes of the common pentatonic, major, harmonic minor and melodic minor scales; the so-called "blues scale" is also briefly covered A short chapter containing the fingerings for the intervals within the octave, which can be thought of as two-note scales The first chapter is a very thorough introduction to scale theory: it provides a solid foundation and ensures you'll never again be confused about modes, the most useful but also most misunderstood concept in modern guitar theory.

I use this as the basis for most of my theoretical teaching with students who are ready for single-note work.

Part II: Advanced Resources Part 2 covers pages and is full of strange and wonderful scales and arpeggios. To answer both of these questions, we simply ask you to think of yourself as a carpenter's apprentice, learning how and when to use the tools of his trade. Once you have learned this, then you can apply this knowledge in creating, designing, and building whatever you desire.

Our System does the same thing by providing you with the necessary tools of your trade chords, scales, arpeggios, etc. Teaching you how, when, and where to use these tools will help you create and build better lead solos and eventually help you develop into a more rounded guitarist and musician. There is a very important reason for setting up this book in this fashion. It is our belief that most guitar technique publications are very difficult to work with.

They tend to become unclear and out of focus for the student. So we have structured this technique book to have the 10 Lesson Plan program right in the beginning of the book, clearly laying out exactly what to study, in simple outline fashion. Our goal is that you can easily follow this program, all the white learning to play guitar with the most solid base of technique available today. We have included in the back of this book a list of publications we believe will help enhance your technical ability because we believe that no one book, including this one, can cover the complete scope of guitar technique.

We have devised a unique feature in this book by also listing some of these supplemental publications precisely at the right place and time inside of each Lesson Plan.

Warm-up and developing speed exercises We feel that one of the best ways to warm up and develop speed is to practice using scale exercises. We suggest you start by using the Major Scale and using either the A or B fingering. Use the alternate picking technique down-up stroke pattern and begin with a slow tempo.

Practice the scale, first in eighth notes, then in eighth note triplets, sixteenth notes, and in broken thirds, ascending and descending in two octaves. Once you feel comfortable playing this scale at a slow tempo, then gradually pick up the tempo and repeat the entire exercise.

After working with fingerings A and B, we suggest repeating the entire exercise using fingerings C, D, and E. These fingerings are great for stretching your fingers. There are several things to remember.

First, the warm up exercises should total no more than fifteen to twenty minutes at the beginning of each practice session. Train, don't strain. Second, always begin the exercise with a slow tempo and don't increase the tempo until you can play the scale smoothly. Over the years, guitar players have used certain tricks to help strengthen their fingers and develop speed.

As crazy as they may seem, they do work. The first trick is to practice all scale fingerings wearing a tight rubber glove on your left hand. Another trick is to use very heavy gauge strings and raise the action on your guitar a little higher than usual. When playing scales or arpeggios, remember to keep the fingers of your left hand as close to the strings as possible. This is not only proper technique, but a little trick in developing speed.

The greater the distance your fingers have to travel to hold down a string, time will be wasted, thus losing speed. The first thing we would like to discuss is how to hold the instrument. The proper way to hold the guitar when practicing, is to sit on a chair or stool with both feet flat on the floor, and have the body of the guitar rest on your right leg. In order to have a clear view of the entire fingerboard and be comfortable, it will be necessary to angle the body of the guitar just enough to allow you to lean slightly forward over the body.

It is perfectly all right to wear a guitar strap of your choice if it keeps your guitar from sliding around on your leg, however it is certainly not a requirement. We strongly advise using a good music stand. We do not recommend placing your music on a bed, on the floor, or on a table because it not only makes reading music difficult, but could damage your eyes. In addition, it also makes it harder to hold your guitar properly as we described above.

Purchasing and using a good metronome when practicing your lessons will definitely be quite helpful in developing a strong feel for timing. We also suggest learning how to keep time by tapping with your left foot. In order to quickly advance, each power packed Lesson Plan in this system will require seriously practicing every day.

Since each practice session will require total concentration, a quiet place to practice will be important.

How long should you practice each day? Initially, to begin with, we suggest practicing each section approximately twenty to forty-five minutes each day.

As time goes on, it will be up to you to decide which section of each Lesson Plan will need more or less time. Try to increase your total practice time if you can, to as much as your own personal schedule permits. When practicing the scales and arpeggios, it is very important not to over practice and strain your arms and hands. Remember, just like weight lifting, train, don't strain. If you find yourself practicing an exercise over and over again and becoming frustrated with it, we recommend stopping, and either moving on to another exercise or putting the guitar down and walking out of the room.

Sometimes giving yourself a couple of hours or even twenty-four hours away from practicing will help you forget your frustrations and help you clear your mind and begin with a fresh outlook on practicing.

We recommend developing good eating, sleeping, and physical exercise habits because the daily concentrated practice sessions will drain your energy both mentally and physically. It is important to remember, as a musician, you must play in smoke filled places and keep late hours.

In order to per-form four or five hours each night at peak level, you must be in excellent mental and physical condition. Also, sometimes the reason you might find it hard to sit down and practice Is because you are not in good overall condition. Practicing takes a lot of everything you've got, so if you want to be successful at learning the guitar, try to develop good practice and overall habits in your life.

As we mentioned earlier, these Lesson Plans are a guide to helping you organize each of your dally practice sessions and develop good practice habits. Each individual Lesson Plan should take approximately two weeks with an average of two hours work per day. Basically work at your own speed and know that you are doing great If you can complete each Lesson Plan in a two week period. The most important thing is to take your time; make sure you thoroughly understand each step before moving on.

Good Luck It is obvious that without developing the proper picking technique, the chances of ever developing speed and articulation would be almost impossible. Therefore, we've chosen three excellent techniques to highlight for you: Before discussing these techniques, the first thing we would like to cover is finding the right pick.

This, we feel, is up to the individual's own taste.

8 Essential Arpeggios

We recommend using a heavy gauge pick, but experimenting with all gauges thin, medium, and heavy would certainly be a good idea. Holding the pick is the next important thing we would like to cover. This is simple because there is only one proper way to hold the pick, and that is between the forefinger and the thumb. Any other way is incorrect. There are three basic picking techniques: It is very important to choose one or a combination of these techniques before attempting to practice the scale fingerings or arpeggio fingerings.

Make sure to try each technique, and then choose the one which feels the most comfortable to you. The first technique we would like to discuss is picking from the elbow. First, hold the pick between your forefinger and your thumb. Keep your wrist straight so your arm and wrist look like one straight line from your elbow to your fingers. We suggest that your arm and hand should not touch the guitar. Now, keeping the pick stiff, move your arm up and down pivoting from the elbow.

The second technique is picking from the wrist. Holding the pick firmly between your forefinger and thumb, move your hand up and down pivoting from the wrist. You may rest your elbow on the guitar. The third technique is picking from the forefinger and thumb.

Hold the pick firmly between your fore-finger and thumb.

You may rest your hand or just a couple of fingers on the pickguard as a guide or support. Now, rotate the pick in almost a circular motion, just using your forefinger and thumb, keeping your arm and hand straight. Remember, all the picking motion will come from your forefinger and thumb.

Turn to the Chord Section and note. These are the basic chord Forms that you will be learning over the course of this entire system. We will start by learning one Form at a time. Step 1 Start by memorizing all the Form 1 chords on page Strum each chord four times using a simple down strum and be able to switch from G to Gmaj7, to G7, Gmaj6. The square note on the sixth string, third fret, is the chord root or chord name note. This is your guide note. It will help you move to other frets along the sixth string while keeping this Form 1 chord position in place.

You create the same four chords except in different positions with a new root name. An example of this would be to move the four chords in Form 1 up to the V position.

The root note on the sixth string, fifth fret, is A. These four chords would now be A, Amaj7, A7, Amaj6. Practice the four Form 1 chords by starting from the first fret, sixth string, which is F, memorizing the chord name in that position.

The move up one fret to F or Gb and practice switching the chords strum each one four times while memorizing their names in that position. Repeat this same procedure moving one fret higher each time. Remember, before moving to the next higher position, you must be able to switch the chords smoothly and know them by their chord names and frets. Remember to follow the sixth string root. Start at the first fret and work you way up the fret board on position at a time, learning to play these chords while memorizing the chord names and fret positions.

Make sure to practice these chords by following the same procedures as in the previous steps. Step 5 Turn to page 24 and find the diminished chords. Unlike previous chords in Form 1, there is only one chord switch to make here, G7 to Gdim. Important Note: Any note in a diminished chord may be considered the root. In this system we are keeping the root as the lowest note in this chord. The diminished chords repeat themselves the notes of the chord being inverted every four frets.

Make sure to continue following the previous procedure when practicing these chords. Remember to learn the chord names and fret positions. Follow the same procedure as in all previous steps. Once this has been memorized, practice this exercise in other positions, just as we learned the different chords Forms in different positions.

Step 11 We now take you to the page 77 for the 12 Bar Blues chord patterns. Please read the introduction to this section on page 76 before you start. Practice playing exercise 1, 2, and 3, memorizing each pattern. Once you have done this, try these 12 Bar Blues patterns in other positions and memorize them as well.

Step 12 Turn to page 34 and read the introduction to the Scale Section. After reading the introduction, turn to page 35 and you will find the Form 1, A Major Scale written out with five different fingerings all starting on the 5th fret, sixth string root. Make sure to use the right fingerings and to read the notes on the staff. Always know what note you are playing and where it is on the fingerboard as you go along the scale. Practice these two scales as shown in the Major Scales exercises, which you will find on page These exercises will help you to learn how to read and play in the most commonly used rhythm patterns.

These exercises are written out for you in fingering A. Practice these exercises with fingering pattern B as well. Once you have done this, learn to play these scale fingerings A and B in other positions, as you did with the chords in Form 1, using the sixth string as your root.

Step 13 Now turn to page 54 and read the introduction to the Arpeggio Section. Remeber, these Form 1 fingerings once again have a sixth string root, so once you have memorized these, you can practice them in other positions working from the sixth string root.

Make sure to practice playing each arpeggio ascending and descending all in smooth and fluid eighth notes. Remember, the Form II chords have a fifth string root.

Once you have memorized the Form II chord fingerings and their names, start from the first fret, fifth string, which is Bb, and work these four chords in each position, moving up the fingerboard one fret higher each time. Strumming Tip: With any of the exercises or tunes in this book, for practice purposes, remember to use a simple down strum for each beat of the measure.

What is important right now is to be able to switch chord changes smoothly, while memorizing their names and their positions. Once you have completed memorizing the Form II chords on all the pages in the Chord Section, we suggest testing yourself by playing any chord in two different positions.

FMaj7 would be played at the first fret sixth string root, FMaj7 would be played at the eighth fret fifth string root, Gm7 would be played at the third fret sixth string root, and Gm7 would be played at the tenth fret fifth string root. As you move on to the other chord Forms, you will be learning how to play each chord ten different ways. We have found that most guitar players generally have three or four "pet" chord Forms for every chord.

As you go through this System, you will have the opportunity to choose your favorite chord Forms, but of course if you can use all ten chord Forms, that is even better. Remember, when playing rhythm chords in an actual band situation, you will want to keep your chords close together and avoid large leaps. If you jump all over the fingerboard, the chances of a mistake will be greater.

Also, generally speaking, the best chordal sounding range of the guitar falls between the first fret and the eighth fret. Again we are talking strictly about rhythm chord accompaniment.

You will also' notice that most of the chords in this system are not six string chords. That means that you should learn to strum only the notes that are marked in each chord Form and nothing more.

As we move along, you will learn that it is not necessary to play more than a three or four tone chord. There are certain notes in a chord that are more important to play than others. Usually, the least important tones are the root and perfect 5th. The 3rd and the 7th are the most important. We strongly suggest picking up a good book on music theory to help you understand some of the terms mentioned in this system.

We want to state clearly that this system is not a text on theory. Once you have mastered these exercises, memorize these 12 Bar Blues in other positions. Practice these two scale fingerings along with the A and B fingerings, ascending going up and descending going down in eighth notes, eighth note triplets, broken thirds, and sixteenth notes. Examples of these rhythmic patterns are on page These arpeggio fingerings should be mastered in every position, ascending and descending in eighth notes.

Start on page 16 working through to page Again, memorize these patterns in every position. If you have been keeping up with your Lesson Plans, you should be able to play both the basic chords and chord substitutions without much trouble. If you have any problems, we suggest going back to Lesson Plans One and Two and reviewing them.

Remember, the strumming technique is a simple down strum for every beat of the measure. As you play through the chord changes, pay special attention to chord substitutions and their application. The chord substitutions really begin to set up the chord substitutions for the rest of the tunes in this section. On page you will find a handy Master Guide For Basic Chord Substitutions, which might also help you understand and memorize these substitutions.

Again, these fingerings must be memorized in every position. Exercises A, B, and C on this page must be practiced and memorized in all positions ascending and descending as written.

Do not memorize these exercises or you will be defeating the purpose of sight-reading. Sight-Reading Tip: First choose the right position for each exercise, and without playing, try to count out the rhythmic pattern for each measure.

Then go back and play the exercise.

Begin practicing slowly, gradually trying to increase the tempo. We suggest going through each eight bar exercise three to four times per night. Again, memorize this pattern in every position.

Next, turn to page 84 and learn the chord changes to the tune "Ritmo De La Noche. Once the chord changes in this tune have been mastered, begin to read the melody. We suggest learning to read all the tunes in this System and in any of the Suggested Supplementary Materials in several positions. If you are weak with your reading, we suggest that you pick up any of the various beginners' books and review all of your notes.

Remember to practice and memorize these fingerings ascending and descending in every position. Memorize these in every position, ascending and descending. Practice both the chords and melodies in different positions.

Absolute Beginner's Guide to Alternative Medicine

Step 12 Practice the exercise on the next six pages of the Bug Bower books. We suggest going slowly and mastering each piece, one at a time. There will be no time limit for completing each piece in this book. Pure Scale. All these fingerings will be practiced and memorized in every position, ascending and descending, in eighth notes, eighth note triplets, broken thirds, and sixteenth notes.

Again, all three exercises on each sheet must be completed and practiced in every position. Practice in every position. Step 12 Practice the next six pages in Bugs Bower's book.

Arpeggio Practice - Seventh Chords - 4 Essential Exercises

From this point on, we suggest taking six to eight pages in this book every two weeks. Step 13 Pick up the book Melodic Rhythms by William Leavitt and begin practicing the chords and melodies to the first three exercises.There are several things to remember. Practice these exercises with fingering pattern B as well. These four chords would now be A, Amaj7, A7, Amaj6.

Remember to learn the chord names and fret positions.

Make sure to try each technique, and then choose the one which feels the most comfortable to you. He has spent a good part ability to appreciate and play many types of music. The first trick is to practice all scale fingerings wearing a tight rubber glove on your left hand.

You can do this with the 12 Bar Blues pattern as well. Again, memorize these patterns in every position. If you are weak with your reading, we suggest that you pick up any of the various beginners' books and review all of your notes.
