Seventh Chord Arpeggios Pt. 2

Technique: Sweeping and Economy Picking
Difficulty: Advanced
Lesson Name: Seventh Chord Sweep Arpeggios Pt. 2

Seventh chords are made up of four notes.

To figure out the corresponding diminished seventh chords for a specific harmonic minor scale, we take the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 7th notes of the corresponding harmonic minor scale. For example, in the key of A Harmonic Minor (A B C D E F G#) the corresponding diminished chord would be B Diminished Seventh Chord, consisting of the notes B (2) D(4) F(6) G#(7). Playing them one by one in order would create a diminished arpeggio.

To figure out the corresponding augmented seventh chords for a specific harmonic minor scale, we take the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th notes of the corresponding harmonic minor scale. In the key of A Harmonic Major Minor (A B C D E F G#) the notes constructing a C Augmented Major Seventh chord would be C (3) E(5) G#(7) and B (9).
