    Quadritonal Arpeggios

    I figure I move this into a separate thread all itself. My question for any willing able-bodied guitarist is this: what exactly are quadratonal arpeggios? I have my theories about it but I'm not sure if they're wrong or not. Examples would be highly appreciated. Another question would be is there any awesome multi-finger tapping excersizes on ibreathemusic? Something that doesn't stick to one string but multiple strings...kinda like a Buckethead, Steve Vai kinda thing. Once again any help would be appreciated.

    Never heard about quadratonal arpeggios. I might try to guess taking into consideration the etymology of the term - are you talking about arpeggios based mostly on P4/P5 intervals cos they are quite natural to guitar with standard tuning?

    Could you post some theory on it? We'll discuss it in detail.
    Anyways, waiting for someone who may happen to know exactly what it is...

    hmmm quadratonal.... hmmmm.. sounds like seventh-arpeggios with four chordnotes (1,3,5,7) instead of triad arpeggios which only have 3 (1,3,5)
    .... might be wrong though

    All I could find on quadratone:


    "Quadratone: A black and white image printed with four screens and four colors, such as one or more blacks and different shades of gray, used to enrich the contrast between light and dark areas."

    Quadratonal arpeggios; sound like arpeggios with four notes per octave, like someone said, four-note chords (like maj7 and dim7). Could be wrong though!

    Well that's basically what I was figuring. I was thinking maybe it's an arpeggio that has 4 tones to it, 1 3 5 7, but I wasn't for sure and I didn't want to adapt to a definition that was wrong. As far as the tapping stuff go on ahead and post. I appreciate the feedback so far.

    The only reference I can find is a quote by Buckethead where he refers to a section of a well-known book by Nicolas Slominsky that discusses quadratonal arpeggios. That quote is on this site in a post by Eric, which is in a thread that briefly discusses Slominsky's book. There is a lot of literature documenting Slominsky, much of which can be found by a web search.
