    Go to the articles & lessons and read about it. Then practice. Seriously, read the articles first, check out anything (everything) by EricV. That's why they were written :O

    Are you for real?

    On the main ibreathe page, look at the left part where it says "technique". Click on that. Now look at the 3rd article, Arpeggios. Scroll down some more and you'll see "a closer look at sweep-picking".

    If that is too confusing, click on these:

    :/

    Read the articles, do what the article tells you to do over and over. This is called practicing.
    Its not the techniques you use, but the music you make.

    Actually, he's expecting us to teach him each and every arpeggio shape there is to know...i mean, every fingering, every playing technique, every EVERYTHING!!! :S

    Sorry, Mr. Brent...but we really can't play the guitar for yourself...or learn for yourself...or practice for yoursrelf...guitar playing is about hard work and discipline...stop complaining/asking nonsense and start playing more...

    Sorry.

    Hey what if he IS a bot... written by some frustrated guitarist... He must be deactivated! If he is a person though, he just needs to stop being on the computer so much and practice a bit. I would but there's a little anoying thing called work keeping me here...

    Brent,

    Arpeggios are just chords but each note is played one at a time and are not supposed to ring over each other. i.e.
    e|--12--||------------12------------|
    B|--12--||----------12--12----------|
    G|--12--||--------12------12--------|
    D|--14--||------14----------14------|
    A|--14--||----14--------------14----|
    E|--12--||--12------------------12--|
    _|--Em--||--Em arpeggio-------------|

    As you can see they are the same shape but are played differently. Yngwie sweeps ALOT of chord shapes. Check out the beginning to Blitzkrieg. He sweeps a chord shape in that as well. Jeff Loomis from Nevermore sweeps alot of chord shapes. Hell you can even sweep triad shapes. There's alot more you can do with sweeping where you sweep really odd chord and do string skipping, tapping, legato. Begin by sweeping your major and minor chord shapes. Just keep practicing them until you can sweep at 16th notes at 240 bpm or something. Then move on to a different shape and get that up to speed. Then mve to a different shape, or add a small tapping sequence at the peak of the arpeggio. This right here you should practice for a VERY VERY long time. Each sweep has ot be perfectly clean. So start so and work your way up from there. To help us better assess where your at in terms of technique and clarity it would be a good idea to post some clips up and let everyone critique them. It's a great way to get a different perspective and get hints and tips from people on how to better your technique.

    Arpeggio sequencing is something you should definitely tackle after you worked through a decent amount of arpeggios.
