Absolutely not. Learn your arpeggios across all six strings whatever the arpeggio.

If you are a rock player, probably more immediately useful is to learn the diagonal arpeggios shapes, ie the three octave ones that go up the neck as well as across the strings. What is nice about these is that they are patterns that repeat every two strings. Much like pentatonic shapes, this makes it (relatively) easy for most people to improvise with them compared to the CAGED shapes.

Paul Gilbert has a few lessons on youtube going over this and other ways to arpeggiate chords, you should check them out. I found his string skipping ones to be especially useful, even if I can't come close to playing them at the speed he does

Yea go for it,, and a little tip from someone else who is also now learning arpeggios
dont follow patterns from books or tabs
find the notes you want for major minor diminished etc
print out some blank neck diagrams and write out the notes and find your own arpeggios..

Paul Gilbert is like a guitar prophet. I have heard so much from this guy, not just on how to play, but just general knowledge in Music and Guitar.

I agree, Paul is excellent in front of the camera. He's also pretty straight up about learning, which is quite refreshing.

stop learning everything by frets. l

earn the notes on the fretboard eveywhere. when you play something you should be able to recall every note you just played, if not you're doing it wrong. Learn what notes make certain triads and once you know the notes on the fretboard you can map out your own arpepggios, for example, i know that an Em triad root consist of playing the notes in this order E, G, B. Now i can find all the E, G, B on the fretboard and make awesome shit, just out of a single triad. Now add the possiblity of inversions, sequencing, 7th arpeggios, suspended arpeggios, and 7 different triads within whatever key you are in.

endless. learn your notes.

A completely valid approach ... I don't know if Jeff Beck knows what he's doing yet (I would guess not) but it's doesn't stop him playing like an angel.

You might want to get into the theory side though, it can only enrich your playing further.
