In this chapter, we learn to create pattern based arpeggios based on Major 7th,Minor and  Dominant 7th .See Chapter 10 Before you proceed from our site.

PATTERN-1

Mute Rhythms:

Mute Rhythm Gives you a great access to create variation points in your basic rhythms. In this part play CMAJ 7th chord in the background with the arpeggio. Below in the figure you see we are playing 2 strokes in 1 beat ,on the 1st down stroke at the 2nd beat there is an X mark up above, that means you have to mute your chord there .To mute it, Simply release the chord’s pressure from the strings, but keep it as same as the chords placement.

PATTERN-1, HOW TO CREATE?

We start from the 2nd note, descend on the 1st note, ascend from the 2nd to the last note and descend to the 1st note again of the Basic 7th Arpeggios we learnt on chapter 10.

Apply mute rhythm on the above arpeggios for background rhythm.
