I've been playing for a while now, and soloing is my strong point in guitar. I know lots of scales, how to improvise and such, but when it comes to arpeggios is it really necessary for a blues rock guitarist? I can see how they would be helpful for shredding or tapping but other than that arpeggios seem kind of pointless to learn for me. Am I in denial? Thanks in advance

If you know a decent amount of theory then you should already know about the arpeggios. Just play the notes of whatever chord you're trying to arpeggiate.

You can use arpeggios in blues/rock guitar as well. Believe me, once you start getting good at some arpeggios you'll find yourself using them.

You might not need to tear through them at 100+ mph like if you were shredding but, it's always good to learn/know

Sweeps and arpeggios are 2 seperate things. 7th arpeggios for example can add that jazzy feel. Or you could simple lead into phrases with varios arpeggios. Though actually a scale is just an arpeggio played with every interval. I find that arpeggios widen my options no matter what style I'm playing.
Quest for "the tone": pending.
