Major Minor 7th Arpeggio TappingIn this tapping arpeggio exercise I want to cover share a trick based around a concept that will add some sophistication to your improvisations (while also being sure to turn heads with its attention-grabbing coolness!) three octave major and minor 7th arpeggios. The first chord we are covering is a Cmaj7, 1, 3, 5, 7 (C, E, G, B). The sequence begins on the seventh fret on the sixth string, hammering on to the eighth fret. Next, pick the 7th fret on the fifth string, hammer-on to the tenth fret, and then tap the fourteenth fret with the second finger of the picking hand. Pull-off back to the tenth fret, and then the seventh fret. This idea moves across three octaves of each of these arpeggios. form here check out the tablature and get the whole pattern. Once you get the basic pattern of the sequence, this pattern is going to next move to an Am7 arpeggio starting on the third fret. The pattern slightly changes because of the difference in intervals. The formula for this chord is 1, b3, 5, b7 (A, C, E, G). For the third chord we are moving to an Bm7 in the fifth postition. (B, D, F#, A). The fourth chord is a Gmaj7 in the Second position.
