Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...
Q: Arpeggios are a new study for me. I'm learning major, minor and the dominant 7th arpeggios now. I know, (from watching interviews with many of the famous guitar players), that arpeggios can be, "mixed" with the scale to create riffs and melody. But, I'm sort of lost with this stuff. How should I go about mixing arpeggios and scales together? Could you make a lesson on mixing & blending them?
Shane C. - Eugene, Oregon USA
A: When it comes to performing intermixed arpeggio and scale ideas, we can get a lot of mileage out of blending these two together. And, we actually have a choice with this, since we can use the arpeggio directly related to the chord, (such as using an "A minor" arpeggio over an "Am" chord). We can also use the, "Diatonic Substitution," method, (where we play other diatonic arpeggios on the chord tones of our chord). Or, we can mix the two methods and get really cool sounds from the melodies found through using both. NOTE: if arpeggios and scales (and some of the music theory) are new to you, it means you've got some studying to do. But, since these ideas can cross-over into a lot of other playing areas, it's well worth it to learn as much as you can on this topic.
