Chords and arpeggios on Major chords 7
Hello friends, today I will try to give us some practice tracks on major chords 7.
I remind you briefly that a Major 7 agreement is composed of:
- Major third
- Just right
- Major seventh
As I show very partially in the video there are thousands of ways to treat a chord, whatever it is, on the guitar. There are hundreds of possible reversals more or less functional in game context. Unfortunately for me, the ones I prefer are the most complicated to do, especially because of the extensions ...
We must also take into account the contexts ... We do not use the same reversals according to the style of music that we play. If you play bebop or fusion or variety you will not use the same reversals.
Personally my goal is to arrive to be as effective as possible in any context and at the same time to find my own way. For example when I work "my own style" I try to make sure not to really use the common reversals but to rethink my agreement.
For example in the video we are on EΔ or E major7: the notes that make up the chord are Mi-Sol # -Si-D #, so we have 2 triads present in the basic chord: a triad of E major (Mid-Sol # -SI) and a triad of minor G # (Sol # -Si-D #).
We could use a triad of major B to also resort to the 9th or a triad of C # minor to bring the sixth ... And the possibilities are many
Your video of the day :
The most common reversals
The following reversals are the most common and even if you want to look for your own system you have to know and identify them easily.
As I tell you in the video, you have to "map the handle", that you set benchmarks. Even when I do not play in agreement, I "see" them under my fingers.

How to work the arpeggios on the guitar?
There is no good or bad way to work the arpeggios on the guitar. I would say that there is no way that suits everyone ... Moreover I will invite you to look for yourself a little too ... Only that way you will progress well. It will take a lot more time but the reward will be there. Moreover psychologically you will find much more satifaction.
A major arpeggio 7 basic
In the position of the next Major Arpeggio 7, one is typically on the notes of the postion of the chord. When practicing this type of arpeggio (strongly recommended), you must know and be aware of the place of intervals. Where are the fundamental, thirds, fifteenth seventh etc .... And all the other notes in the range and even those who are not there ...
Playing arpeggios in octave systems
In the examples below, you have some suggestions for playing your arpeggios in octave systems, that is to say that exactly repeat the same cell at the upper octave or lower with the same fingering. As a result you leave the vertical system or game in positions ....
Make music with arpeggios Major 7
Knowing all his arpeggio positions Major 7 is absolumennt terrific !!! Congratulations if this is your case ... But the main difficulty, no, not difficult but the goal is especially to make music with that, phrasing! I think it's from here that "the work begins". It's a like when you graduate at school, suddenly we say "ha, it's the end ..." and no, it's the beginning!
See you soon friends!
