If you’ve been exposed to at least a bit of guitar theory, you’ve most likely heard of the CAGED system. It’s a system that allows you to visualize the guitar fretboard by using common major chord shapes.
When it comes to the guitar fretboard, there are many different ways to view its structure and layout. The more we explore it the more complete picture we can get of how these structures are interconnected.
In this lesson we’re going to take a look at the major 7th, minor 7th, and dominant 7th arpeggios. These arpeggios are very similar to the major and minor arpeggios, but with an added 7th interval.
Arpeggios are a great tool to use when soloing over chord changes or adding fills to rhythm sections. However, when and how to apply them can be a little confusing.
Guitar arpeggios are when the notes of a chord are played individually one after another. They can be used to add a bit of color to guitar playing.
