Learn how to use arpeggios to craft amazing leads and melodies.
The Rock House Creative Fusion: Beyond Pentatonics & Power instructional DVD showcases guitarist Kiko Loureiro. Open up your musical universe as Loureiro demonstrates natural roots in Brazilian and Latin music. Kiko—known for creating masterful compositions with a unique style—was influenced by fusion, jazz, classical music, and rock legends Van Halen, Page, Hendrix, and Rhoades.
In this instructional DVD program, Kiko shows you a method for using arpeggios to craft amazing leads and melodies. He starts with major and minor arpeggios and triad voicings and builds them into progressions. Then he expands on this concept with major arpeggio extensions—adding the 7th and 9th—and shows how to complete the mission by delivering full dominant and diminished arpeggios in single- and cross-string technique. Kiko explains and demonstrates how these all relate as tools for creating your own unique musical style. Learn modal arpeggios and how to apply them over full-band backing tracks so you can start creating your own masterpieces. The 2-DVD set is complemented by iPod-ready video and a 32-page tab E-book.
