Guitar Basics, The Dominant 7th Arpeggio.
It's time for the G7 arpeggio.
We have the root.
G, we have the 3rd.
Major 3rd, B.
We have.
D, the 5th.
And we have F, the 7th.
So, try to practice this on one string.
Like this.
Or right here.
So you will hear, you will get a, here.
And continue using the others.
Here's the first shape.
G, B, D, F, G, B,
D, F, G, F, D B,
G, F, D, D, G.
Like that.
And if you don't like that big stretch,
maybe you can do it like this.
So instead of like this,
we put the second note on the 5th string.
Makes it easier next inversion
will be starting here.
B, on the 3rd,
B, D, F, G,
D, E, F, G,
E, G, F, D,
B, G, F, E, D.
The 3rd inversion,
starting on the D on the 5th would be.
D, F, G, B,
D, F, G, B, D, B, G,
F, D, B, G, F, D.
And once again, if you have a problem with
that big stretch, you might wanna do.
might wanna finger this
slightly different.
Like, if I do like this.
D and F here and G here on the 5th string.
7th and 9th position.
Fourth position
of the G7 arpeggio,
up here starting on F.
G, B.
E, F, G, D, D, F, E,
B, G, F, B, B, G, F.
There we go,
then we have all the four arpeggios in G7.
And remember to practice these in all
keys if it's possible, not just this key.
Practice this randomly,
you can practice intervals,
maybe G7,
do all these inversions then B flat 7,
maybe D flat seven and
E7 and send in a video.
When you're practicing these arpeggios.
Different fingerings,
try to find it just across the neck.
Maybe this way, and also this way,
that I like the best.
To be able to move in this direction.
