arpeggios are simply the noted in a chord played seperately. There are MANY MANY possibilities for arpeggios on the guitar. For virtually every chord in existence there are at least 2 arpeggios forms on the guitar. If you learn how to play them correctly (which requires chord theory and an understanding of chords, trying studying jazz for chord stuff) you can add some really cool flavor to your solos and riffs. Check out steve vai and trippier dream theater tunes for examples.

Remember they aren't just for sweeping- you can do some cool things with arpeggios in slowed down, melodic situations to, or play them with stretches using alternate picking or string skipping.
