Hello all

I found this You Tube video of classical guitarist playing a beautiful arpeggio but I don't know what it is and I want to learn it. Can some watch the video an identify the arpeggio?

It's paganini, one of the caprices - i forget, been a while since i did it. As far as i know it's in E minor (at least, one on the guitar is), and uses the harmonic minor scale.

Oh thank you. I'll do some google searching and see if I can find it.

Oh! and the arpeggio is just Em - though it is extended up the fretboard using other Em shapes.

Paganini Caprice #5 if I remember correctly. There's a good tab of it here on UG of Yngvwie Malmsteen's rendition of it. It shows some of the arpeggio shapes that are used since he stayed true to the caprice and didn't do too much of an adaptation other than making it work for guitar. http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/y/yngwie_malmsteen/paganinis_fifth_caprice_in_a_minor_tab.htm
It is not exactly what the video you posted played but it might give you some idea of the arpeggios shapes being used.
