I like to join multiple branches of an arpeggio together much the same as I would jump between different pentatonic box positions when I'm soloing. Today's diminished lick starts from G# and works through multiple 3 string diminished arpeggio positions across the fretboard.
This kind of lick/idea is useable in metal and jazz if used sparingly. Let's take a look at the lick.
This lick is obviously transferable into any key or context where a diminished arpeggio is useable, which would generally be over a diminished chord or branching off a dominant 7th chord. You'll notice I've placed some hammer ons and pulloffs within the arpeggios to give them a little flavour and moments of legatoey smoothness.
Have fun with the lick guys!
