Arpeggio Gm7Arpeggios

Arpeggios are easier and quicker to learn and apply than the modes as there are only four of them to learn.

They outline the barre chord shapes as well so you’re merely bridging a gap here between chord and scale.

Go to Arpeggios and get video lessons for every one of them.

Chord Progression AdvancedChord Progression

In the Advanced Lesson Library you find how to play the Ionian mode (the major scale) and how to extend all your barre chords.

On the Advanced Chord Progression pages we pair these two concepts up and play each chord from every note of the major scale.

These exercises will change the way you see the fret board.


Chordacus display all the modes and arpeggios clearly all over the fretboard.

Use this software to help you as you practice.

For example, all modes are practiced using the barre chord shape, the pentatonic and mode, in Chordacus these layers have different colors so you can visualize them easier.

Go to Advanced Chordacus to find out more.

Dom7 Chords Cycle of 4thsChords

Since you can already do this with triads it doesn’t take too long to learn how to do it with these seventh note chords.
