Contrary Motion:
If the bass moves up - the treble moves down.
If the bass moves down - the treble moves up.
Now lets do with passing tones from the C major scale



First examples will all be in C major (4 note chords) using Contrary Motion:
(notes are written lowest tone on left to highest tone on right)




C, E, G, B (C major seventh) passing scale tones play after chord A, B, C

B, F, G, D (G dominant seventh - first inversion) C, D, E

C, E, A, C (F major seventh - second inversion) incomplete C, B, A

B, F, B, D (G dominant seventh - first inversion) incomplete D, C, B

C, E, G, C (C major seventh) incomplete

Imaj7, V7, IVmaj7, V7, Imaj7 progression.




G, C, E, B (C major seventh - second inversion) C, D, E

F, D, F, B (G dominant seventh - third inversion) incomplete C, B, A

A, C, F, A (D minor seventh second inversion) incomplete A, B, C

G, E, A, C (A minor seventh - third inversion) E, D, C

B, C, E, B (C major seventh third inversion) incomplete

Imaj7, V7, ii7, vi7, Imaj7 progression.



F, A, C, E (F major seventh) E, F, G

E, B, C, G (C major seventh - first inversion) B, A, G

G, D, F, B (G dominant seventh ) A, G, F

C, D, F, A (D minor seventh - third inversion) A, C, D

A, E, C, F (F major seventh - first inversion) F, E, D

B, G, C E (C major seventh - third inversion)

IVmaj7, Imaj7, V7, ii7, IVmaj7, Imaj7 progression.

Some of these chords are difficult to play on guitar. Suggestion when overdubbing or playing with another guitarist - split chord into two separate parts. Also experiment changing octaves of notes within chord-higher or lower in tone.





C, G, B, E (C major seventh) C, D

B, G, D, F (G dominant seventh - first inversion) F, E

D, F, A, B (B minor seventh flat fifth - first inversion) C, D

C, F, A, E (F major seventh - second inversion) D, C

E, G, C, B (C major seventh - first inversion)

Imaj7, V7, vii7b5, IVmaj7, Imaj7 progression.



D, F, A, C (D minor seventh) C, D

C, G, A, E (A minor seventh - first inversion) E, D

D, E, G, B (E minor seventh - third inversion) B, C

B, F, B, D (G dominant seventh first inversion) incomplete C, B

C, E, G, A (A minor seventh - second inversion)

ii7, vi7, iii7, V7, vi7 progression.



C, G, B, E (C major seventh) D, E

D, G. B, F (G dominant seventh - second inversion) F, E

A, F, C, E (F major seventh) E, D

C, E, G, B (C major seventh)

Imaj7, V7, IVmaj7, Imaj7 progression.



C, E, G, B (C major seventh) E, F, G

B, F, B, D (G dominant seventh - first inversion) incomplete D, C, B

C, D, A, F, (D minor seventh - third inversion) A, B, C

A, F, C, E (F major seventh - first inversion) E, G, F

C, E, B, C (C major)

Imaj7, V7, ii7, IVmaj7, Imaj7 progression.



Now transpose these to each position (register) of your instrument, then to all 15 keys.



Remember to experiment and create at least three variations using these same principles.

Arpeggios Played In One Position Part V

Vince Lauria on iTunes | YouTube | IMDb | AmazonMP3 All materials copyright © 2010 Vince Lauria | www.vincelauria.com.





Now continuing with playing chord changes arpeggio style - in one position.
Do this process with all progressions you encounter.

Now lets go though chord changes in one position. Ascending means to play notes up in tone, descending 
means to play notes down in tone.Remember to do this process with all progressions you encounter.

Now combining: Major, Harmonic Major, Harmonic Minor, Natural Minor, Melodic Minor (I am using Jazz Melodic Minor - same notes ascending as descending) and diatonic and non-diatonic chord substitutions.

Play all of these chords arpeggio style - up in tone (ascending) where indicated and then - down in tone where indicated (descending).

Cmaj7,         C, E, G, B, ascending 

C#dim7,       C#, E, G, Bb ascending
