Major Arpeggio Guitar Lesson

In this lesson, we’re going to show you a helpful exercise for playing a major arpeggio across 3 octaves.  The major arpeggio is constructed of the Root, 3rd and 5th degrees of the respective major scale.  In the example below, we will be playing a C major arpeggio which includes the Root (C), 3rd (E) and 5th (G) of the C major scale.

We suggest that you practice this exercise with alternate picking.

Be sure to practice with a metronome. 

Here is the example in music notation and TAB.
