Arpeggios In Counterpoint Chapter I

Here is an example of how you can play arpeggios in counterpoint: by having the second guitar part delayed by one note while tracing the steps of the other guitar part. To play this you don't have to have two guitarist, you can use a delay pedal and sycronize the delay time to your preference. I find it a lot easier to do with the delay pedal. The second sequence, for those of you who haven't caught on, is identical to the main sequence displayed but delayed one note. playing arpeggios like this gives in a major thirds and perfect fourths sounds, a very strong, melodic, and thick sound. When I play in counterpoint I use a delay pedal and set the level a bit lower than my guitar sound so the delayed guitar part is not as loud, doing this will prevent it from sounding too thick and muddy.
