Arpeggio Study Part 3

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, December 3, 2017, In : music theory 

Stacking the Arpeggios to the max

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

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. So those three notes can be used again in a different sequence, lets use the terms 1...

What is Arpeggios?

Let me explain this to you in a way that I think will uncover what somethimes can seem a bit of a mystery. Imagins the dawn of time some people agreed og a group of notes, in this case the Major scale, and then imagine a monestry a group of munks are singing and one of them notices that when you skip every other note in that scale and ask three munks to sing the first, thir and fifth note of that scale it sounds awesome, then take those three notes and sing the notes one a...

Jazz Shred Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, July 6, 2015, In : music theory 


In this lesson we are going through a standard Jazz chord movement which is the II-V-I or 2-5-1 movement. Its often or was often used as a method as a tonal "breakthrough" to go into the next II-V-I or II-V movement in the next key. But here we will just use it as a Super imposing tool. Which we will "act" as if we play over the particular chord(which I actually do in the video) but we can easily use it over just one chord which will then be the Super imposing. But to get a deeper under...

Chord inversions for guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : music theory 

The most obvious reasons that most guitar players always play the same old barre chords are probably because the guitar is so un easy to get a good overview of, so pretty much all we learn on the guitar is made up of patterns, scales and chords are all made up of those to make it easier to get the job done, but especially regarding chords that can  really be a hindrance because we never get the full advancement of all the chords, voicings and inversions that are available to us if we nev...

Basic music theory for all guitarists

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : music theory 

In this video I'm showing you the absolute critical knowledge that all guitarists and musicians in general needs to know to be able to communicate musically with other musicians which then makes you able to play with other musicians and understanding why and how to make the scales, arpeggios and chords work together and also to make a quick analysis of a piece of music just from looking at the chords and then decide what scales to use. 

The little lesson shows you precisely how the chords...
