Continuing on the theme of playing arpeggios without using the common sweeping technique (urgh! dont get me started on that! No I'm NOT anti sweeping but I do think its being flogged to death as the only arpeggio technique worth doing. Im on Marty Friedman and Paul Gilbert's side on this)
One of my favourite Paul Gilbert-isms is his arpeggios using different chord types like Major 6ths and 13ths etc... I saw a video Paul had done regarding this arpeggio and I loved it. Such a different effect on the arpeggio sound.
Here is an A Major 6th arpeggio using a wide string skipping technique. One note on the first string followed by three notes on the next and another three notes on the third string.
