Arpeggio example

Arpeggio example

If the notes of a chord are broken up and played from low to high or high to low, the chord becomes an arpeggio. Think of notes as pieces of candy. If you eat a handful of candies all at the same time, this would be like playing a chord. If you eat the candies one at a time, this would be like playing an arpeggio.

How do you identify an arpeggio?

An arpeggio is a group of notes played one after the other, up or down in pitch. The player plays the notes of a particular chord individually rather than together. The chord may, for example, be a simple chord with the 1st, (major or minor) 3rd, and 5th scale degrees (this is called a "tonic triad").

What is an arpeggio in music?

An arpeggio is a broken chord, or a chord in which individual notes are struck one by one, rather than all together at once. The word “arpeggio” comes from the Italian word “arpeggiare,” which means "to play on a harp." (“Arpa” is the Italian word for “harp.”)

What are arpeggio patterns?

An arpeggio is a chord whose notes are played one at a time instead of simultaneously. It's sort of the exploded view of a chord. Playing major arpeggios on guitar prepares you for music with major chords — and, of course, for music that employs major arpeggios.

What are arpeggio exercises?

A simple way to look at building arpeggios is by stacking third intervals or simply skipping notes within a scale. For example, from the A minor scale (A B C D E F G), you would make an A minor arpeggio (A C E). You skip the B and D notes to make the arpeggio.
