Arpeggio picking (where we pick the notes of the chord individually - instead of strumming over all of the strings) is arguably the #1 way to beautify any guitar song.
You can use it in songs that were originally played with it - or to refresh songs that weren't.
If you like the sound of it - let me tell you more about it. Let's go:
Are you tired of the same boring way of playing songs - only by strumming them? ("down-down-up", etc.)
Think about the following songs - can you recall the guitar picking style that makes them sound special and stand out? I bet you do for at least most of them:
This picking style - called arpeggio picking - where we pick the notes individually instead of strumming all strings together - is exactly what you will learn in the Complete Arpeggio Songs course.
ou will learn exactly how to use the arpeggio technique and incorporate it into ANY song that you'll choose to.
The lessons' topics include
- Everything about playing songs using the arpeggio picking - and that means that we will be talking practically and using examples from popular rock and pop songs.
- Exactly how to transition any regular (strummed) song into an interesting, arpeggiated one.
- How to use the arpeggio technique both by using a pick or by using your fingers. (Fingerstyle arpeggio)
- The #1 secret for smoothness and accuracy when playing arpeggios - when a friend told me that - my whole approach to arpeggios became a lot more natural and easy, AND I sounded way better.
- Learn when and in which parts of the songs it'll usually sound much better if you'll use arpeggios instead of regular strums.
- You'll be able to write songs using the arpeggio technique - songs that'll be a lot more unique and interesting than ones that only use the same single strumming pattern over and over.
- Learn the exact arpeggio patterns for songs ranging from Bob Dylan, Green Day, Jeff Buckley, R.E.M and many other greats.
- You will learn the technique that I call "Arpeggio Bass Stairways" - which will let you add gorgeous, melodic transitions between the different chords of the song.
- How to make your arpeggios "dirty", so you can add some power to the more intense parts of the song while still not playing the simple "down-down-up" kind of rhythm.

"Excellent and easy to understand introduction to arpeggios. I loved all the practical examples from the different songs that you included, it helped put things in context." Jim Averback, England
"I remember when I just started playing guitar and I suddenly started hearing those special picking styles on the radio and never knew how to do it. Since then I have been trying (pretty much unsuccessfully ) to start playing like this myself but could never really get the hang of it so I was very happy when I stumbled upon a link to this course on pinterest. So far Im about 5 lessons in and I'm finally hearing those sounds out of my own hands just like I always tried to do. So thanks for creating this!!" Trey Feltham, Australia
