Technique: Sweeping and Economy Picking
Lesson Name: Seventh Chord Sweep Arpeggios Pt. 1
Seventh chords are made up of four notes. To make minor seventh chords, we take the 1, 3, 5 and 7 of the corresponding minor scale. For example, in the key of A Minor (A B C D E F G) the notes constructing an A Minor Seventh chord would be A (1) C (3) E (5) and G (7). Playing them one by one in order would create an arpeggio. Likewise, in the key of A Major (A B C# D E F# G#) the notes constructing an A Major Seventh chord would be A (1) C#(3) E(4) and G# (7).
