Lesson: All-In-One-Arpeggio Pattern for Classical Guitar – This is Exercise No. 15 from my pdf book 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar for beginner to intermediate classical guitarists. Includes: notation, TAB, fingerings, practice tips, video lessons. YouTube Lesson Link.
This is one of my favourites exercises and it’s a great way to practice a number of difference arpeggio patterns all at once. It’s a number of different arpeggio patterns grouped into one continuous looping exercise. This is one of my favourite pre-concert exercises as it covers a lot of ground in very little time. Just remember to keep a nice balance in the right hand and execute the thumb and finger strokes at the same time as a solid dyad. If you have trouble playing the pattern and time signature, start by playing the patterns one at a time:
- pi – m – a – m – i
- pm – a – m – i – m
- pa – m – i – m – a
- pm – i – m – a – m
