Regarding Arpeggios

Post by protoblues on Mon Oct 20, 2008 5:50 pm

Hi, I've come across Sir Andrew's brilliant vids on youtube about 4 days ago and I'm up to the lesson about chromatic / pentatonic scales and watched the lesson on arpeggios.

and I just can't help but think... How do you construct 6/7 note arpeggios? I mean in a 3 note arpeggios you take the chords and play them 1 by 1...But how about 4/5/6/7 note arpeggios where will we get the notes to play? Is it in the scale?

Thanks in advance. Smile

XD well...there is no such thing in common scales as 6 or 7 notes in an arpeggio. The most you'll usually see is a 4-note. Such as a dominate 7th arpeggio. Smile hope that clears it up!

Arpeggios are broken chords and you can construct any of kind of arpeggios using any number of notes. Let’s construct a 6 notes arpeggio, we’ll need more than just a C triad. We can use a C dom 7 b9 #13 chord. The notes available to us are C/E/G/Bb/Db/A#. We can then play this chord as an arpeggio.

Technically, the notes that are available will be in the scale depending on what chords you are trying to arpeggiate. These notes are also available in the different modes.

Let’s try one more. How about a Gmaj 7 chord? The notes available to us are G/B/D/F#, these notes are also present in the G major scale. You can choose to arpeggiate 3 notes – G/B/F# or 4 notes – G/B/D/F#.

To arpeggiate more notes, you can get it from the scale, if you add A to the G major 7 arpeggio. You then now have a 5 notes arpeggio G/B/D/F#/A, which is a G major 9 chord. You can arrange your arpeggio in any order that you want.
