The chord progression is:
By playing through this chord progression you can hear very predictable diatonic intervals moving up the scale. To get the most out of the chords I decided to include 7ths so that the majority of our arpeggios will have at least 4 notes.
This simple concept is a cool way to highlight the sweet spots of a chord moving through a progression. You'll notice the 2nd, 4th and 6th bar have a longer arpeggio and a slightly less predictable shape than the usual 7th arpeggios as I've added an extra note and a descend. I think it's always worth experimenting with new shapes and adding in a few extra notes into your arpeggios. You might consider adding in 4ths, 6ths, 9ths, 11ths and if you're feeing sassy 13ths to get a more unique sound.
