Alexandra Zerner | Sextilis | Arpeggios Lesson

In the first “episode” of my free licks & tabs I want to show you a snippet from my track Sextilis, which, in essence, is a repeating arpeggio pattern in 7/4, based on chord progression in B- (aka Bm). Below you can see a video, where I play this part and on the bottow you will find the tabs for the part. Enjoy and share!

This week in “WeeklyckZ” I decided to show you an ascending arpeggio lick, based on Em9maj7 chord. The lick is constructed by patterns, each one starting from different, sequential notes of the chord.

This week in “WeeklyckZ” I decided to show you a four arpeggio sequence, based on Gm, Gm#7, Gm7, and Gm6 chords. Played slow, it may sound a bit weird to you, but in the original tempo it’s pretty useful, if you want to spice up your solos.

This week I decidedΒ to show you a bit more advanced arpeggio lick, inspired by Jason Becker​’s style of playing diminished arpeggios. This one is a mixture of three different arpeggios – Aβ™­dim, Fm7 and G7, which combined construct a G7β™­9β™­13 chord – it has a dominant function and a bit of gypsy jazz flavour.

This week I decided to show you a tapping arpeggio inspired by Tony MacAlpine. There is a little tricky moment at the end, where you have to bend the string with your right hand, while you tap.

This week I decided to present you an extended range lick – an 8-string descending arpeggio, played over an Am6 chord. This time, I thought, that it may be useful for you, if there is a strings pad below the lick, so you can get a better idea of how it will sound over the chord.

This week I made for you a video tutorial for a descending picking lick with some interesting flavour – it is in Hungarian minor scale, aka Double harmonic minor scale. The pattern of the phrases is often used in the neoclassical shred – you will see it clearly enough in the slow tempo part of the video.

This week in “WeeklyckZ”, I decided to show you another exotic lick, which is a Gm6/9(7#) arpeggio. I know, that the chord name sounds frustrating, but it is not that hard as it seems. The arpeggio is inspired by Django Reinhardt and it is basically a minor arpeggio with added major 6th (which gives the subdominant Django’s flavour), an added major 7th, which makes the chord even more unstable, and a major 9th, which is actually the 2nd note of the scale (melodic minor) – just for fun πŸ™‚

This week I am presenting you one more extended range lick, and more specifically, a 7-string one. But this time it’s even more interesting, because it is also a hybrid picking lick, with string skipping. The lick is in Harmonic minor scale in F#m.
