Technique Rules! - May 2002

Hello again,

There were no "Technique Rules!" for a while but they are back with a good one with some advanced ideas.

The exercise is something related to arpeggios. Most people use sweep picking to play them - which is good of course - but I found some other ways to play them which are opening different possibilities.

The idea is to take a four-note arpeggio such as major7, dominant7, minor7, etc and play it in a two notes per a string grouping. By breaking it out like that you can now be able to play those arpeggios using alternate picking (or pull off/hammer on's). Being able to apply these techniques on arpeggios is opening a whole new world of ways to phrase them in solos or compositions.

Explore other options by yourself.

Stay cool and have fun!

Borislav Mitic
