The barring and rolling technique

So one of the totally crucial techniques you need to master to be able to play even a satisfying sweep picking arpeggio is the barring technique, but evidently not just barring, you need to drill what I also call the rolling technique or rolling barr technique.

Another Trick That Makes You Practice Consistently

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, December 18, 2017 In : how to practice 

Take what you already know and get the most out of it

As you can also see in the video I take some techniques that I already know and bunch them together to a new and fun pattern. What I also do is I identify what techniques or patterns I need to work on and make sure they become a part of the new piece I practice.

Remember to watch the two previous instalments of Arpeggio study before watching this to get the deepest possible insights on the theory of Arpeggios unless you are already up to date on the Triads and the theory of Inversions. 

The Major seven

So this time we are going to continue from where we left off with the Triads, the theory you may know by now is that we take every other note in the scale that we work with, and in the example I'm using I work in the C M...

Arpeggio Study Part 2

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 In : music theory 

Inversions of chords and arpeggios
The idea of inversions is that you take the notes of the chord or arpeggio which essentially is the same but executed differently, so as an example if you have a C chord, that consists of a root note, a third which gives you the information of whether its minor or major and in this case its Major. so the notes would be root note is C, the Major third is E and the fifth is G.
