Nonlinear Quartal Arpeggios (minor)
In this short melodic study I explore a few different ways in which we can play nonlinear extended minor arpeggios (including the 9th, 11th and 13th of the chord) using the interval of a 4th as the primary building block and architectural element of the melodic line.
Playing fourths on the guitar at fast tempos presents quite a few technical challenges as such intervals are always located on top of each other on two adjacent strings. Their clean execution and tonal control is something that requires a lot of practice and preplanning so that we have a great sense as to where and how we can position/finger these intervals. Hopefully these short examples can give you some new ideas to explore in your own practice routines.
