Arpeggios from Space

Hi there to all you Insane Guitar Players. In this, my first column, I want to share with you some Arpeggio patterns that are a little unusuals to see around, but I might that as good as how far you want to take your guitar.

This will require to warm up if you don’t want to hurt yourself, O.k.? Then try to find more possibilities to give lots of colors to your arpeggios.

Something About Me: I started to play guitar since 13, while listening Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. At 16 I was playing in a Top 40 band named “Riddle”, 2 years later I was playing Helloween, Stratovarius, Edguy, etc.. Now I’m playing and composing with my prog band “Famelica Carcoma” (we don’t have nothing recorded yet, but soon you’ll be the first to know).
