GUITAR THEORY: Arpeggio Swaps - Common Tone Use Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I like shred guitar, and how arpeggios sound when used in the leads, but some players are using the wrong arpeggios on chords. There must be some kind of logic to this, but I just don't get the concept. Can notes exist in backing chords that relate to a different arpeggio that can be played over it? And, what is this idea called in music theory? Thank you for making guitar lessons on the internet, - Stefan, Germany A: One thing students need to get their head wrapped around when studying arpeggios -- be it in shred guitar, or in almost any other style - is the fact that in a lead or melody line you don't have to follow the exact same chord changes that the rhythm track is playing. Really cool arpeggio lines can come from a mixture of the correct arpeggio, as well as, what might seem like a completely unrelated arpeggio.
