Let's begin looking at arpeggio playing, Arpeggios are the tones of a chord played as single notes. arpeggios can be used to spell out the sound of a chord. for example we learn to arpeggiate the C major chord, so we have triad major 1-3-5 (C-E-G), practice this chords ascending and descending. 

formula : 1-3-5 ; 3-5-1 ; 5-3-1 (full shapes)

 if we cannot play all shapes, we must try practice half of shapes, for example
