Major Arpeggios

This tutorial will discuss Major Arpeggios.

An arpeggio is a chord who’s notes are played one at a time.

A Major Arpeggio is an arpeggio based on a Major Triad.

Supposing we start with a C major triad, the notes in this chord are C, E, and G.

If we find every instance of the notes C, E, and G on the fretboard, we end up with five different positions.

The positions look like this:

Position 1

Position 2

Position 3

Position 4

Position 5
