In this "Lick Of The Week" free video guitar lesson from guitarlessons365.com you will learn how to play diminished arpeggios in the style of the great Randy Rhoads.
There are many ways to finger and pick these types of arpeggios. I have chosen a sweep picking pattern to play them to more closely achieve that Randy Rhaods sound.
Randy Rhoads used this pattern a few times in his solos. Most notably in his unaccompanied guitar solo during "Suicide Solution" on the live tribute album. By the way, if you don't have that album I highly suggest picking it up. I think it is Randy Rhoads at his absolute best!
The pattern is rather simple and shouldn't take long to grasp.Â Then you just repeat it across different string sets. There are a few big stretches as well, but as long as you position your thumb on the back of the neck in the proper position you shouldn't have much of a problem doing the stretches no matter how long your fingers are.
