    Brent, I'd love to hear some examples of you playing these.

    I think anyone who can adopt sweep picking in one day and then play those six string sweeps with hammer ons is really going some.

    EricV showed me some three string arps and some string skipping arps (don't ask.) in January 2005, it's now January 2006 and I'm stilll practicing hard at them to get them down right.

    ...and you are an idiot!
    EricV gave you alot of good advice and explained everything clearly and precicely to you. It is now up to you to get off your butt and start learning this stuff and applyng it to your own playing. You seem to have this wrong attitude to the guitar - that you must learn 10 million different scale and arp patterns in 300 different octaves so that you can play like malmsteen. That is not how the guitar works dude. Get a good book, learn your theory and take it one chunk at a time. Your guitaring will never improve until you realise how ignorant, rude and single minded that you are.

    No need for insults, Satchmaster, let's keep it friendly even when we're frustrated.

    Brent has all the info he needs, he just needs to work through it to realise what it is he has.

    Interesting thread, maybe I can help. Once in a while I see these ads in Guitar World magazine that promisses you will play like a pro or you will become a fire breathing guitar shredder god in something like 30 minutes or less . To be honest, I haven't checked it out yet to see if it is legit or not but next time I see it I will post the info here, and who knows, you might become Yngwie jr in half an hour.

    I'm pretty sure Brent is a troll. He did make EricV dig up lots of useful info though. :P

    Guys, we're veering off towards personal insult again...

    That's a very easy thing to do and easy to avoid.

    If you don't want to contribute to the thread, and i accept there is probably little left to say on the topic, then don't post anything as it is likely to be personal.

    I could be wrong but I think this Brent guy is just having some fun at our expense (specialy Eric V who took a lot of time to reply to him) and he deserves all the s**t we might throw at him

    However, if he is serious about his questions, then I am sorry, but buddy you need to learn how to walk first before you can start running. I know it is an old saying but it holds true for almost everything in life.

    The EMajor arpeggio is shaped like a square and the Eminor is shaped like a circle.

    I believe the Dominant have something like a pear shape.

    Brooooooooo. come on man. they've given you everything you've asked for, and they've been polite about it the whole time. stop asking questions, especially ones already answered. those questions you just asked have been answered at least 3 times in the thread before.

    this isn't my call- but i think this thread should just be closed...sufficient info has been given and stuff...and he's just being redundant with his questions.

    ok, everyone needs to calm down. Patience is a virtue. I've had many students who've wanted to learn everything under the sun in about an hour. They'll come to realize it on their own.

    Anyways, the major, minor, augmented, and diminished shapes are very easy. They are:

    C Major Shape
    e|-----------------8-12-8---------------|
    B|---------------8--------8-------------|
    G|-------------9------------9-----------|
    D|----------10----------------10--------|
    A|-------10----------------------10-----|
    E|--8-12----------------------------12--|

    C Minor Shape
    e|-----------------8-11-8-----------------|
    B|---------------8--------8---------------|
    G|-------------8------------8-------------|
    D|----------10----------------10----------|
    A|-------10----------------------10-------|
    E|--8-11----------------------------11-8--|

    C Augmented Shape
    e|-----------------8-12-8-----------------|
    B|---------------9--------9---------------|
    G|-------------9------------9-------------|
    D|----------10----------------10----------|
    A|-------11----------------------11-------|
    E|--8-12----------------------------12-8--|

    C Diminished Shape
    e|------------2-5-2------------|
    B|----------4-------4----------|
    G|--------5-----------5--------|
    D|------4---------------4------|
    A|----6-------------------6----|
    E|--8-----------------------8--|

    Cm Arpeggios from Yngwie's Blitzkrieg
    e|-----------------15-20-15-----------------|
    B|--------------16----------16--------------|
    G|-----------17----------------17-----------|
    D|--------17----------------------17--------|
    A|--15-18----------------------------18-15--|
    E|------------------------------------------|

    As you can see these are just chords played in different places. I wrote everything in the key of C. If you want to play an E Major Arpeggio just move the C Major Shape up 4 frets (maj3) and you have the basic shape for the E Major Arpeggio.

    If it's a library of chords/arpeggios you want then go to http://www.power-chord.com/gaff /mapper to get them. Pick your root note, pick your chord and click submit. It's very intuitive.

    I realize everyone is getting angry because he keeps asking the same questions but this could be like a 12 year old kid with ADHD (Attention Deficite Hyperactive Disorder), or OCD (Obssesive Compulsive Disorder). I have had one student, and a brother that have those disorders. It does wear on your nerves, in which case you should stop reading this article.

    Brent, one of the best resources available to most people is a guitar teacher. He'll be able to show you everything your doing right and everything your doing wrong. He'll teach you the music theory. To me, I now see you need ALOT of background in music theory in order to get rolling on arpeggios. It kind of makes me wonder why you posted all this stuff about Cells, and counter-point. I read up even further and I find you've answered you own question a couple times. If you need a one-to-one explanation, feel free to send me an IM on AIM or something. I won't mind. I'll see if I can drudge up any videos of me playing arps or something.

    I'm trusting you can figure out how to get to the other modes.
    That took me a whole 5 seconds to look up on google.
