OPEN CHORD ARPEGGIATE

DEFINITION

Arpeggio - Derived from the Italian term arpeggiare, meaning "to play the harp", the word arpeggio refers to playing the notes of a chord in sequence (scale), as a harpist often does, rather than strumming the notes all at once.

Hold the chord and pick through the strings starting from the top string. Pick down through the strings and then back up. This is an arpeggio on the guitar.
