what are some good arpeggios for melodic metal, like some children of bodom, a little hardcore like atreyu, and some shred like malmsteen and vai? thanks.

The quick answer is easy. Take any minor scale, and play one note per string as you either ascend or descend, and you have yourself a legitimate minor arpeggio, which constitutes the majority of what you'll find in stuff like Bodom, and especially Malmsteen (harmonic minor stuff in particular).

I'm sure other guys will be happy to provide more elaborate answers, but if you're up for experimenting a bit on your own, anything in A natural minor or E harmonic minor will pretty much fit the bill, if you're just getting into sweep picking.

im just trying to start some easy sweeps now, so i figured arpeggios would be a good way to start. thanks.

Hey punk rocker whats shakin. im in the 'just getting started with sweeping' boat as well, and i'm starting off with low BPM three string sweeps to get my wrist/fingers used to the idea of sweeps. heres a few of the things i practice with:

Simple 1-3-5-8-5-3-1 marjor arpeggio shape. move it all over the neck

E|-------12h15p12----------|
B|----13-------------13------|
G|-12--------------------12--|

Simple diminished shape. Again, move it all over the neck

E|---------12h15p12----------|
B|-----14---------------14-----|
G|-15-----------------------15-|


those are some basics. if your looking for larger sweeps, using all 6 strings and whatnot, let me know.

Sweep picking arpegios do a one string or two string arpegios, and put some Harmonic Minor Runs in Between.
