    Whoa. Finally finished recording one long-ass video on arpeggio (chord tone) fingerings. Took forever to write out the music for all the examples and then after finishing all the encoding and uploading I realised there was a bit of my background stand visible in the vid. Arrgh!
    Anyway, the video covers the 3 basic fingerings you can use for any single arpeggio around one root note position. It's the same as the tri shape system I covered in the scale vid (if anyone saw that) . I've been really looking forward to putting this lesson out there because this stuff made a big difference to me when the penny dropped. There'll be a follow up lesson on complete neck coverage but hopefully that won't take me as long.

    Hope that's of help to someone. I know it's long but it's certainly shorter than a comparable lesson I'd give on a one to one basis.
