I would like to practice arpeggios, and I've recently learned how to play this:




It was a lot of fun and I'd like you fellows to recommend some more arpeggios (something similar to what I've posted?) for me to learn. I'm interested in improving my chord-to-chord placement as well as picking. If you guys wouldn't mind providing a link to the song's tab, that would be lovely.

Thanks, UG - you guys are awesome!

^I don't think he wants sweep picked arpeggios. seeing that he has just learnt to play arpeggios in 8th notes that all the notes are being left ringing as long as possible.

TS, my maind is unfortunatly blank at the minute for specific songs, but I suggest you read up on "diatonic arpeggios" as, if you were to write something yourself, it wouldn't really sound "wrong".

I didn't just learn how to play arpeggios in 8ths, but you are correct in saying I'm not interested in learning sweeps right now. That's quite a few steps away from where I'm at. Thanks, though!

Arpeggios are just chords, so learn how to construct chords.

I didn't mean to sound like an ass, I was just simplifying in order to compare sweep picking to what you are looking for.

This is the perfect song for beginning arpeggios. It's just basic open chords

A lot of red hot chillies stuff uses arpeggios - the start of under the bridge is based on arps, snow (hey oh) is basically a bunch of triads and their inversions.

Every Breath You Take by the Police is a bunch of add9 arps too - great for stretching your fretting hand

Also - try writing your own stuff. Come up with a chord progression you like, then write a melody over it by arpeggiating the chords. You'll learn loads and have fun - and you'll get a song out of it!

dude anything by yngwee malmenstin is perfect for learning sweeps, like far beyond the sun or black star

What a wonderful world - Louis Armstrong is similar to what you posted

1. Memorize all the notes on the fretboard.
2. Learn chord construction.
3. You now know every arpeggio.

Take some chords. Arpeggiate them.
