Im trying to learn this song, and it requires me playing an F minor Arpeggio which has F G# C Notes

the sweep motion i have to do is roll one of my fingers against 3 strings on the same fret to play these notes, and i hate rolling with one finger while sweeping, i can sweep well with 2-6 string sweeps using any postion and with rolling my finger on 2 strings. but if its more than that i freak out like some one scratching their nails against a chalk board. You dig?

so is there an alternative note choice that sounds the same as the f minor chord/arpeggio?. so i dont have to roll.
:-D

1. An F minor arpeggio is F Ab C, not F G# C.

Here's the way I usually sweep an F minor:

e--------------4h8t13p8p4-----------
B-----------6--------------6--------
G--------5-------------------5------
D-----6-------------------------6---
A---8------------------------------8-
E---------------------------------------

I'm an asshole, but in the context of an F minor arpeggio, you should refer to the G# as an Ab to describe its function as the minor third.

Try finding the two notes you have to roll in the same pitch, but on a different string set. Also I encourage you to learn to 'roll' so you don't get into the habit of avoiding things you find difficult.

Then GuitarPro and all-guitar-chords.com are incorrect.

They're enharmonic, but have different functions. A minor triad is spelled with scale degrees 1 b3 5, which would be F Ab C (F minor scale is F G Ab Bb C Db Eb). Were you to notate it F G# C, that's 1 #2 5 and, though it would sound the same, would not be an F minor triad.

I would suggest learning the technique used in the song. That's part of the reason to learn the song. However, I suggest using the Eruption-style tapped arp if you want to take a shortcut:

and though you should get used to playing it that way, I thought I'd point out you could play it

but you would have to slide up 5 frets
