Monuments Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 24, 2017, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 



About these Arpeggios

This piece comes from my new album Concerto, its the third track on the album and is called Monuments, this partucular thing is the intro Arpeggios and represents a lot of different interresting Arpeggios mainly using Sweep picking. We both getu regular triad Arpeggios but also four note Dominant Arpeggios in different inversions, Major seven and diminished sevens plus the really cool Major seven raised fifth from the third step of the Harmonic minor scale

Harmonic minor Alternate picking speed

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 29, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About
In a way this is just a simple Alternate picking lesson, but again there's so much to be able to be fast and clean in the Alternate picking technique. But once you get the fundamentals down in the technique you are able to play fast in everything that is build from the scales with the three notes per string concept, that's also the reason that it looks so easy for the players who really master the Alternate picking technique and who has a strong basis in the three notes per string concep...

Harmonic minor Sweep picking Tapping advanced

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
This lick is really cool and I have used it quite a lot on my recordings like in Infinity Overture: The Infinite Overture pt.1 and my solo album Sthenic. Its a combination of a minor sweep picking triad and a lot of notes added from the Harmonic minor scale with tapping with three fingers on the right hand 

Technique
One element that to some degree can make a very advanced lick like this seem a little easier is the hammer on´s I do as a help to make the shift between the sweep picking tec...

Sweep Picking Harmonic Minor Sixth Mode

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 17, 2013, In : sweep picking 


This Major seventh arpeggio fits the sixth step in the Harmonic Minors scale as well as it fith the first and fourth position in the Major scale.Regarding the sixth mode in the Harmonic Minor scale it is called the Metropolitan scale but using a simple four note arpeggio only calls for a Major seventh arpeggio even though the scale itself has a raised ninth. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Dominant Flat 9

Sweep Picking Dominant Flat 9

This arpeggio is quite a stretch because here we actually have a five note sweep picking arpeggio and we actually play three notes per string on a few strings using hammer on ´s and pull off´s and you can use it from the fifth position in the Harmonic Minor scale. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Dominant Arpeggio

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Dominant Arpeggio

This sweep picking arpeggio can be used from the fifth step in the Harmonic Minor scale. It can actually also be used from the fifth step in the Major scale, in the Melodic Minor scale you can use it both from the fourth and fifth step. Take key to the specific fingering that im using in the video. I think it leverages the possibility to increase the speed as fast as possible. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 4

This sweep picking arpeggio is minor 7 and fits the fourth mode of the Harmonic Minor scale. It can also easily be used in the Major scale from the second, third and sixth mode in the Major scale. It also really cool if you are searching for a new sound instead of the triads. Good luck

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 3

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 3

This lovely sweep picking fits the third mode in the Harmonic Minor scale which is Major seven with the raised fifth. But I also add a four finger per string legato phrase on the high E string which then in turn adds the nine and the eleventh to the arpeggio, so the only note missing for it to become a thirteenth and then having all the notes of the scale is the G sharp, you could add it with a tap if you like. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 2

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 2

This arpeggio is a Bminor seven flat five and it requires a bit of a unusual fingering and a few extra hammer on´s and pull off´s but nothing some practicing sessions with a metronome cant fix. It fits the second mode of the Harmonic minor scale as well as the seventh mode of the Major scale. Good luck !
