    Speaking as someone who has been studying music for almost 30 years, I have always benefited form the use of Arpeggios. An Arpeggio roughly translates as a broken chord and it can provide tremendous insight into how chords are constructed and how harmonies work. Understanding this and how to build arpeggios is essential for gaining a good understanding of where chords can be found on the fretboard and how to improvise.

    In the introduction to Arpeggios E Book, you will learn how to construct and play the Major, Minor, Augmented and Diminished Arpeggios. These four arpeggios will form the foundation for all of the chords that you will learn form here onwards. A good understanding of these is a necessary stage in your theoretical and technical development.
