E Aeolian 3 Octave Arpeggios and Legato ScalesArpeggios are notes of a chord in which the notes are played individually. When they are played in a chord progression in this manner were we pick each note of the chord separately, or use them to compose a melody, and last but not least, use them in a guitar solo as another technique to use for improvisation. In this exercise we are mixing them with legato scale playing to spice up the sound. Here you have, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, and shifts all together to give you this unique and useful set of techniques to add to your playing. Players such as Allan Holdsworth, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Paul Gilbert all use these techniques. This lick begins on the second fret and moves though a G major seven arpeggio in three octaves, then mixes a legato passage from the E minor scale. The second half Is the same idea on the C major seven arpeggio, and then uses another E minor scale idea.
