Arpeggio is considered to be the most outstanding lick in the world of instrumental skills. Niccolo Paganini used to amaze his listeners by the magic of arpeggios performance as on a violin, so on a guitar. His Capricci achieved the world fame. From those times musicians started to show great interest to high-speed performance of arpeggios.

Sweep Picking (aka Economy Picking) technique, represented in this app, is the key technique that will allow you to achieve a very high-speed rendition of arpeggios. The most famous guitarists like Yngwie Malmsteen (neo classic rock), Tony Macalpine (rock, extreme metal), Tosin Abasi (progressive metal), Frank Gambale (fusion, jazz), Steve Morse (Deep Purple; rock, barocco), Richie Kotzen (hard rock), Jason Becker (heavy metal, neo classic), Paul Gilbert (speed metal), Stochelo Rosenberg (gypsy jazz, manouche), John Petrucci (Dream Theater, instrumental rock), Rusty Cooley (progressive metal) and many others masterfully use sweep picking arpeggios in their music. All types of these arpeggios with fingerings, strokes, inversions and much more are integrated into one single application (WOW!)

By having this app, you will be able to play arpeggios as fast as professional guitarists do! Of course, you will need some time to practice, but result is worth it!

Customer Reviews

Amazing and helpful app


I was very hesitant to buy this app because of the price, however I decided to take a chance. The app itself gets 5 stars, it shows around 200 arpeggio shapes in each key, plays them with backing harmony chords to the tempo you choose. Absolutely perfect for sweep picking practice and learning about arpeggio construction. There are beginner shapes and more advanced with complex movements and tapping. Honestly I'm blown away this is amazing. The negatives: there are very few. I wish the metronome tempo was easier to set, you barely touch it and it goes up 10 bpm or more, hard to set it to a specific number. I think it would be nice if the harmony chords also worked in reverse so you could enter a chord progression and have it show you matching arpeggios. I would like to be able to set the app to different tunings i tune down a half step but the app is standard tuning which can be confusing Finally I would like to be able to enter my own arpeggios to practice to, that would make this app pretty much perfect. The only other negative is the price. I'm glad I got it so in that sense it was worth it, but I think $15 would be more realistic, 25 is really high for any app. That's the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise I highly recommend this for anyone looking to improve their sweep picking technique. Thanks for reading!



This app actually helped me with learning how to sweep pick and I found it a lot more helpful than the books and videos that I looked at. It has a lot of cool features and is very understandable. The layout of the app, I thought, was very simple but there is a lot of info in that one page. At first I thought that the price was really high for just one app, but after testing it out I wish that I had bought it sooner instead of buying bookshop wasting my time on videos.
