Of course, we know that targeting chord tones is vital to hit the right notes as we’re soloing!

In this lesson I’m giving you the power of the major 7 arpeggio.

These sound great over any major chord and even to define tonal centers as I’ll explain later in the course.

Major 7 arpeggios, just like the chords, contain a major triad. This is the reason you can play these over major chords.

The chord also adds a note seven notes above the root. This 7th note is located a half step below the root up the octave for a bright sound.

Learn these shapes and memorize them so you can visualize these chord tones all over the fingerboard regardless of key.
