In this lick I'm combining the A-minor arpeggio with it's dominant Eb
Diminished arpeggio. You can continue to play the sequence down the
fretboard going from one to the other through the shapes of both
arpeggios. This lick uses hammer ons and pull offs as well as picking
and sliding. You can pinpoint the sliding by looking at the fingering on
the tablature: When ever I use the same finger to fret two consecutive
notes, I'm sliding from one note to the other. Practice slow and with
100 % control at all times and speed will follow automatically.

This is a little piece I made based on Paul Gilberts arpeggio string skipping technique. I've added the fourth and the ninth on every arpeggio. But even though each arpeggio has a total of six notes in them (A note more than than the pentatonic scale) they still sound like arpeggios. Add this neo classical arpeggio sequence to your vocabulary by practicing only one arpeggio until you master it. Then move on to the next and practice that. There are only 3 shapes that you...

In this example I use only two basic arpeggios: The tonic and the dominant chord in the key of A-minor. I alternate between the G# diminished arpeggio and the A-minor arpeggio in different inversions across the neck. Practice slow and with precision. Keep working at a pace where it feels effortless and easy - and speed will follow naturally.
This piece is pretty straight forward. It's a combination of two well known sequences used in a lot of classical music. Notice that I use sweep picking to play the diminished arpeggios in the end. Practice slow and with precision. Keep working at a pace where it feels effortless and easy - and speed will follow naturally.
