Playing Arpeggio Runs. When I was learning on how to play piano, I was going trough some exercises that involved playing arpeggios all over the keyboard. I've involved it in my guitar playing and I'm glad to present it here. Maybe it's not so innovative but surely functional. Have a nice practice, folks! The practice goes like this: 01. Pick an arpeggio. 02. Pick a root note and find every octave of it. 03. Play the arpeggio using various techniques. You can practice it by sweeping or alternate/economy picking. It's up to you. Here you can see my example: 1. Minor arpeggio ( 1, b3, 5 ) 2. Root note : G Octaves of G note :

G|--------------7-----------------
D|----------5-8-------------------
A|--------5-----------------------
E|----3-6-------------------------
And a great musical exercise is ready. Play it with sweeps, hammer-ons and pull-offs, sing the arpeggio along, try various rhythms... Options are countless, and writing it all here would be pointless! Have fun and stay in creative mode all the time. Don't forget to choose from all the arpeggios you can use - minor one is not the end of the world :) If you like the article, like my Facebook profile! Daniel Kaczmarczyk, lodzgitara@gmail.com
