yea i just found a site like 2mins ago called all-guitar-chords.com and that helped me a bit with the arpeggios but i would still like some help from people on the site and i dont know minor and major shapes



Learn the theory, learn how chords are built and what scales are comprised of and how they correlate with one another you will find that you can find good arpeggios for solos. It's worth all the effort man.

i made this thread to find patterns not so people could tell me to learn theory, im to lazy to learn all that theory stuff, it seems to complicated

It's a shame that this is actually a problem

Learning theory will open up more possibilities when you solo/improvise, and your all round playing.

If you do take it up however, divide your time equally between theory and actually 'playing' the guitar'. In fact maybe even 70/30. 70 being on the guitar.

mdc's right. Don't dive straight into theory and learn as much as you can in a single afternoon. Learn a little bit each day, and let it all sink in.

if you don't know minor and major shapes, what shapes do you know? wouldn't that be the place to start out?

Well, if you want excersises, then I've got one for you. Although, it's more focused on theory, it's still helpful for getting creative with your sweeps! Firstly, play a scale, any scale over whatever frets you want. Then, take one random note on each string and viola, you've got yourself a new sweeping pattern. I usually figure out the name of the arpeggio, but that isn't really necessary for all of you theoryless noobs out there!
