Does an arpeggio have to be played in certain order for example 1st, 3rd, 5th for a major chord, or can it be played in any random order as long as you stay in the same chord? I guess a good example would be the song "Simple man" by skynyrd. The intro is played out of C major, G major, and A minor, but it is just played randomly out of those chords, would it still be an arpeggio?

Yes, an arpeggio is just a chord played piece by piece, rather than as a whole. So you can play it any way you want.

The chords in "Simple Man" are called arpeggiated chords they are just kind of spread out more or less, each note picked out in ascending or descending order. There is no real "rule" on how to arpeggiate a chord. An actual arpeggio would be in order like you mentioned.

1 3 5 is the formula for a major triad which is basically a chord or arpeggio but for minor its root, flatened third, fifth or for diminished its root, minor third, diminished fifth, and there is also augmented which is root, major third, and augmented fifth

There's no real rule on how to play them. I often find cool little bits by randomly picking them.

holy fuck, YOU, of all people, are criticizing somebody for the way they type?

why don't you type like you AREN'T a fucking 6 year old retard, and THEN worry about other people. you seriously appear to have the grammar and intelligence of somebody with downs syndrome. it's really unbelievable you would criticize somebodies speech.

So what if I don't know much about it? If you want to jump on someone because they don't know much about theory and what not, go to UG.

Until then, shut your mouth, and listen to my stuff before you criticize me.

No way man, the word noob is legendary! :D It's l33t for us gamers. I am a proud dork, nerd, and loser, and with this combination, I shall rule the world!!! MWAHAHAHA!! (overkill? I think so too)

I agree with the no reason for criticising people Baudelaire, but he is better than other people. But honestly, I can't tell you not to say that, because it's the same words he used.



GuitarMG, EVERYONE STARTS SOMEWHERE. Your ignorance of that will get you no where.


To everyone else:

Dun' Worry


Be Happy
