Finally overcoming a personal obstacle!


Basic version:

Light blue: Em Pentatonic scale
Red: Diminished arpeggio
Green: Resolving notes


Complex version:

I've got a story to share about my quest to master diminished arpeggios. Spoiler alert: it's been a rollercoaster ride of challenges and victories.

Back in the day, I was all about Yngwie Malmsteen and those mind-bending diminished arpeggios. But let me tell you, trying to fit them into my jams was like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded. Talk about a struggle!

Then, one day, it hit me like a ton of bricks: the magic of diminished chords in jazz progressions. Suddenly, it all clicked—I started tossing bits of those arpeggios into my usual scales and riffs.

After some trial and error (okay, maybe a lot of error), I cracked the code. I figured out how to sneak in those fancy diminished licks into my own musical playground.

If I can do it, so can you. Dive into those diminished arpeggios, start small, and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Every breakthrough is a victory worth celebrating!

Thanks for tagging along on my musical journey. You've got this! 👊

Rock on,
