Learning how to use arpeggios is key to creating strong melodies and melodic solos. In this example, we look at a how to create a solo that is so melodic that the chord changes can be heard without any backing rhythm.
An arpeggio is simply the notes of a chord being playing separately. For example, a Dm chord has 3 notes D, F, A that all need to be played together to create the harmony for that chord. An arpeggio would still play these notes, but separately. Because of this we can still hear the chord by playing single notes. This opens up the door to many amazing new freedoms on the guitar.
