In this course I will show how to combine major scales and diatonic arpeggios. Let’s first look at what a diatonic arpeggio is.
Take the C major scale: C D E F G A B , you can build chords from each degree of the scale by stacking thirds on top of each other. Start on the first note C and then move up it in thirds, meaning that you skip every alternating note: C D E F G A B
To get more notes for your chord, just keep adding thirds on top.
Starting from C we’ll have C E G B which give us Cmaj7,
Starting from D we’ll get D F A C which is Dm7
