  There are several ways to play a series of chords. One way is to use arpeggios. An arpeggio is simply a chord played one note at a time. On guitar, there are many techniques for playing arpeggios. One interesting way involves the use of string skipping. The string skipping technique allows for wider leaps between notes.

First play this chord progression:

Arpeggios 1

Now, try using arpeggios to outline the chords. Master the phrases eight notes at a time, until you are ready to move on.

Arpeggios 1

Apply this idea to any chord progression.
