Can someone explain to me two things.

Chord tones : what are they?

Arpeggio's : I thought they were broken up chords or just designated notes from the scale, is that what they are? Are there certain arpeggio shapes or can you make your own.

Thanks alot.
Chord tones are the tones that make up a chord. In a C major chord, the chord tones are C, E and G. In Gmaj7#11 the chord tones are G B D F# C#

Arpeggios are chord tones played seperately. You can make your own arpeggio shapes all over the fretboard.
