 A diminished 7th arpeggio. These move up or down 3 frets and the root note is any one of the notes! So in this case it's a G, Bb, C# or E arpeggio!

c# part of E arpegio , please tell me thats an error. or i  totaly just give up as of today theory for ever.

chix

what you said doesn't even make sense.  I'm not sure what you're even asking?

are you asking what are the notes of an E dom 7 arpeggio?

Hi All,

I know I'm supposed to play each note individually (hence arpeggio and not chord), but should I be muting the strings I'm not playing on?

Thanks in advance.

@ jchen1717

Only if they ring.  You want to hear only one note.  I use the tip of the finger that's playing the next note when going physically down (ex: A string to D string, mute the A with the finger playing on D), and rest my fingers on the strings when going physically up.

Hi,
The new mini sweep is a great start for arpeggios. Please can you however advise on the guitar tone you use on this video as it clearly helps the overall effect. When you play each note on its own the note really rings and seems to grow / swell. Are you using short delay to thicken note, reverb, distortion, compression etc. Also it looks like single coil in the vid - are they special ones (i have lace sensors ) and do you recommended bridge/neck or ??

Basically the lesson is great but i think if you advise on the tone/amp settings this would make it even better.

PS your site is brilliant for someone learning/improving :)))))

Hi,

Shouldn't the first note of example 5 be a G, instead of a F#?

justin, i wanted to comment you a doubt about this lesson.

tab would be:

E||--------------12--15--12----------|----------x--x----------|
B||----------13--------------13------|-------x----------x-----|
G||--12--14----------------------14- |--x------------------x--|
D||----------------------------------|------------------------|
A||----------------------------------|------------------------|
E||----------------------------------|------------------------|

rigth hand is not picking continuosly the string like:
--------x--------||
-----x-----x-----||
--x-----------x--||
-----------------||
-----------------||
-----------------||

there are some stops for hammers and pull off. it´s really difficult for me to play it fast because these stops. right hand is not playing XXXXXX, it´s X-XXX-XX.

some help?

sorry for my bad english.

What is the best way for me to mute strings if they ring. For example, when I take my finger off the 13th fret of the B string it rings out the open B. So how can I best stop this?

There are other lessons on the site that cover muting out the string noise. You do it in a variety of different ways. Sometimes the tip of ur finger needs to be up a little high to mute the string above, sometimes your finger needs to be arched just right to mute the string below, sometimes your other fingers need to rest in place to mute other strings, and sometimes your picking hand helps by partially palm muting.

Honestly if your struggling with this you may be getting ahead of yourself by learning sweep picking. Try the other basic scale lessons and legato lessons first if you havent already. In my opinion you should be fairly comfortable with cancelling all the extra noise long before you consider sweep picking.

Just my 2 cents.

@ eternally_gutted

ok i know these questions r directed at justin but if i feel i can help, why not chime in, right?

Anyway i had the same issue at first. Just gotta do it slow so that the notes are coming out evenly timed, not the picking.

 You r correct though, there is a slight irregularity in the sweeping speed because of the hammers and pulls, but as u work on sweeps like this your hand will get used to it. with diligent practice on a metronome it will start to feel natural.
