Guitar Lesson: Using Arpeggios in Solos Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I want to "Pimp up" my soloing to become much more melodic and I want to clearly "paint" those chord sounds in my solos, (Maj7, Min7, Min7b5,...Dom. 7). I learned about modes and I'm able to figure out modes, chords and arpeggios by ear and their intervallic structure all over the fret board, but could you please make a video on ARPEGGIOS: (specifically) How to creatively use them in soloing, because I don't want to just shred scales up and down, I want to get the tone and the voices out of every harmony. Tim Hamburg, Germany Thanks for writing in! Arpeggios are one excellent way to do exactly what youre after. Because, the arpeggios are the chord tones. So, by playing arpeggios - you actually are covering the notes of each chord. This pulls out the rich color of the chord of the moment and allows you to have a very connected sound when the one chord changes to another. The complete lesson article for this video is available on the Creative Guitar Studio website.
