Improvising Chord progrssions into Rock and Blues Arpeggios

Post by kentaku_sama on Sun Feb 15, 2009 12:37 am

I've noticed in the Piano improvisations of rock and pop songs I like use a special kind of arpeggio like in this video: CLick here! How do you learn that kind of arpeggio what kind is that? Is it just a arpeggio with notes left out? I want to know how to imporvise the left hand like that! But i'm not great at it...

Its called Rock Chords, or Power chords.

Basically you take a normal chord like C major : C4 E4 G4

Remove the middle note and add the next tonic: C4 G4 C5

And play it back and forth(find your own rhythms)

If you want you can add more notes of the chords like so:

C4 G4 C5 E5 G5

Or maybe add a second?

C4 G4 C5 D5 E5
