Major Chord (Triad) Guitar Arpeggio Chart (Scale Based Patterns)by Jay Skyler
Guitar Lesson Summary & Chart Explanation
Major Chord Arpeggio
Chart of all five CAGED forms of the Major chord Arpeggio. Since there are only 3 notes in a plain vanilla Major chord, they can also be called Major Triads.
These forms are subsets of the Major scale built on the same root.
Scale Based Guitar Arpeggio
Patterns in this Chart:
Scale Based Arpeggios:
These have the same notes as the chords they are derived from; but are played like a scale. The notes are laid out in the numerical or alphabetical sequence of the notes that make them up (e.g. R, 3, 5, 7, or A, C#, E, G# etc.) rather than in the voicings of the various chord grips like the chord based arpeggios.
They may start on any scale degree depending on which hand position you are in.
The whole neck can be covered in 5 forms just like the scales.
