Heavy Metal Warm-Up - Arpeggio Scale

Heavy Metal Warm-Up - Arpeggio ScaleCan there truly be anyone who ain't fascinated in the very least by the amazing huge crazy sound of guitar effect - the breathtaking ambience, the amazing sleight of hand that make our ears stare in awe?

Actually.. I've already wrote this in Bahasa, and this time I wanted to share it back to you old man, (kidding, lol) but in a different language (just because I’m just that kind of guy).

OK.. I'll just start with Arpeggios. Arpeggio itself is a chord notations that plucked alternately, which is not really a complicated thing, whenever you play on an acoustic guitar and then you play it perfect or a lot of people call it the word beam chord or musical notes and then you shock or strings, then it is Arpeggios.

Heavy Metal Warm-Up - Arpeggio ScaleOn electric guitar, we can easily find this a lot on Neoclassical music, because this is much similar with the notation of the violin, such as Yngwie J Malmsteen, Lee Retenour, Eddie Van Halen or even my fav guitarist ever John Pettrucci, etc..

G Major Chord Scale

An exciting way of exploring the fingerboard further is by way of the Arpeggio Scale. However, before attempting this, first study the following chord diagrams and you will see that they form a chord scale. The root note of each chord is from the G Major Scale = G A B C D E F# G

G Major Arpeggio 'Scale'

The G Major Arpeggio scale acts as an excellent warm-up routine. This will increase your knowledge of the fingerboard thus helping to promote exciting musical ideas for song, riffs and solos. See the image on the left to get the impression :)

I’m only going to remind you here more often of something you already know, size doesn't matters.. Is it?!?! Lmao. In practicing guitar, your finger must be long enough to touch clearly or you don’t have a snowball’s chance.

Enough said. The important thing is don't let the people laugh at you, behind your back... just because your finger ain't longer enuf to touch the rest of the scale board. Lol.

So, let’s assume that you'll never bother with this kinda prob.. That’s OK then..

Extended Arpeggios

The following arpeggios start at the lower end of the fingerboard and finish at the higher end.

Now, you know everything I know (well, plus what you knew before). I hope this works well for you; it is the way guitarists are professionally played for their fans.

Think of me sometime guys while you’re polishing your trophies. I knew you could do it :)
