720 Sweep Arpeggio Patterns for Instrumentalists

Sweep Arpeggio Patterns sound awesome because they combine chord tones and tensions. This book will help any instrumentalist interested in sweep arpeggio patterns to maximize their application. By working with some or possibly all of these 720 sweep arpeggio patterns you will gain the technical skills to permute any arpeggio so that it can be used more often, without sounding like a "lick." Working with these patterns will also strengthen your ability to play more angular types of melodies, and will also show you a different way to outline chord types through an arpeggio. The course can be used by any musician, but is tailored to guitarists.

720 Sweep Arpeggio Patterns will also be very useful with the other sweep pattern books that I have released or will release, in the future. Musicians tend to play arpeggios from the bottom to the top or vise versa. This severely limits the use of these musical ideas. Working with these 720 patterns will help diversify your musical palette, and allows you to reuse material without it becoming repetitive or obvious to the listener.

If you are a guitarist we also highly recommend that you also work with the Guitar Technique and Physiology Course so that you learn Sweep Arpeggios with the proper technique.  This course gives you a comprehensive approach to playing guitar and includes a video on playing sweeps.

Benefits From 720 Sweep Arpeggio Patterns

Here are some of the benefits from working with the 720 Sweep Arpeggio Patterns:

  • Melodic diversity through arpeggiation
  • An understanding of how a limited number of notes can be used in many musical situations.
  • Technical control over arpeggiation
  • Sight reading of angular melodies
  • Theoretical understanding of the application of limited resources
  • Excellent for sight singing especially if you include the MetroDrone in your practice.
  • If you are a guitarist with weak sight reading skills you can still play the sweeps by using the String, Picking, Finger and Fret guide shown for all the sweep arpeggio patterns. See example below.

Examples from the 720 Sweep Arpeggio Patterns Course

The four examples below show you a few of the 720 sweep arpeggio patterns found in the course. It is recommended that you pick a few examples each week and then play them Cycle 5 to help with memorization and to build your technical skills.
