Cool technique that we can add into any of our arpeggios. The basic principle is to have one note, go up to the next scale degree, go back to the note, go one half step down, then hit the original note again! It depends on if you’re playing a major or a minor where the scale degree up is so here’s a summary.



1 – Whole Step

3 – Half Step

5 – Whole Step



1 – Whole Step

3 – Whole Step

5 – Half Step


Try this with any arpeggio! Thanks.
