Arpeggios

In music, an arpeggio is a chord where the notes are played or sung in succession rather than simultaneously. The word comes from the Italian for "in the manner of the harp."

The following instruments use arpeggios:

- String instruments are used to play arpeggios in classical music. Along with scales, arpeggios are a form of basic technical exercise.

- Bass guitarists often use arpeggios to play out chords.

- Guitarists use arpeggios extensively in certain genres, such as Neo-classical.

- Synthesizers are often called upon to play arpeggios, especially in electronica. Some synths contain arpeggiators especially for this purpose. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
