Product Overview


Arpeggios (chords played as individual notes) are an indispensable component of music and can become an invaluable tool in your musical bag of tricks. Paul Mehling has methodically created a program of drills and exercises that “connect the dots,” offering a disciplined approach to practicing for guaranteed results.

Paul starts you off with basic first-position chords, then works his way through increasingly more complex chord forms, from open position to closed shapes moving freely up the neck. He covers major, minor, 6th, dominant 7th, diminished, and other arpeggiated chord forms.

Throughout the lesson, Paul provides numerous tips and points of advice to help you build your playing chops and increase your familiarity with the guitar fretboard. You’ll learn to understand how each chord is built and how improvisation grows out of these exercises.

Guitarists at all levels will gain knowledge of the fingerboard, improve improvisational skills, and build left- and right-hand power and speed.
