I was told by friends that I am ready to learn arpregios. However, I know they are difficult and need to start at the very beginning. Is there a book, video, website lesson, or tab that I can practice to get good at playing arpregios? Which would be the best according to you?

Uhmmm...those have nothing to do with learning about arpeggios...

Give me a second, TS.

Do you know what an arpeggio is? Do you know how to construct chords?

I wish to learn arpeggios as well and I dont know how to construct chords, just play ones I know.

An arpeggio IS a chord, you just play the notes individually...so learn how to construct chords.

A good way of looking at the basic arpeggios (maj, min and dim triads) is to see
them as 3 prime "diagonals" on the neck. This will give you a full octave of where
all the notes are located.

Explained and pictured here:

Best way to learn arpeggios is to understand what they are - the notes of a chord played seperately. Try looking at the theory lessons in my sig for how to understand and apply that.

THE STICKY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LEARNING ARPEGGIOS. THIS IS A TECHNIQUE FORUM. ARPEGGIOS ARE NOT A TECHNIQUE. IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE RUDE, AT LEAST HAVE YOUR SH*T STRAIGHT.

You need to understand what they are, and build them up for yourself on the guitar instead of looking for common shapes. That way you will understand them better. Start with triads on different sets of strings. Two strings first then build up from there.

It might be that the TS made the common mistake Arpeggio vs sweep.

Even I occasion still make this mistake, or refer to a sweep that is also an arpeggio.

Arpeggios aren't a technique, arpeggiating is though...although I've still come to the conclusion that the TS's friends are just a bunch of noobs trying to sound clever.

Besides, this ISN'T a technique forum, it's a theory forum

Not only are arpeggios play by picking the notes seprately, they are also played in order chromaticly.
