Here, I put together a progression in the key of F# minor. The first few measures are similar to the three-octave arpeggios we have learned in the previous lesson. Over the next three measures, we move to two-string arpeggios. Notice how the progression moves down the neck beginning with A, then to the F#m and then G# dim. In the last measure, the D# and the F diminished are not in the scale, they are just passing chords. Also, remember to use alternate picking throughout this whole example. Download example audio...
This is another example using chords from the key of F# minor. I also threw in some octave displacement techniques to keep things interesting. There are some triads used in this line, like the E major triad at the end of the first measure. The last measure implies F#m with some wide interval stretches. Download example audio...
