I was mucking around with some 2 string arpeggios and just messing with your standard 1, 3, 5 triad over 3 octaves and decided to add a descending run. I put a few different arpeggios together based on a chord progression in E minor with a cheeky moment or harmonic minor/dominant Phrygian at the end.
The chords are Em, C, G, B. The 4th chord B major has a D# in it changing the key signature from E Aeolian to E harmonic minor/B dominant Phrygian. Let’s take a look at the exercise.
I really hope this exercise help you guys see a great use from these little 2 string sweeps as I’ve seen many players fall into the trap of over using 3 and 5 string arpeggios. This exercise will hopefully help you mix arpeggios with scale runs rather than always keeping both ideas separate.
Have fun with this one guys! Happy shredding!
