Example 2 is an E13#11 arpeggio. This one is all sweeping except for a couple of hammer-ons and pull-offs.
Example 3 is an E7#11 arpeggio. We’re going to sweep this one also, with a position shift on the D string.
Example 4 is E9 flat- 5 arpeggio. This one has the same shift on the D string.
Example 5 could be considered E9 flat- 5, but it’s a little vague in its tonality because it’s not
played like a normal arpeggio—in an ascending and descending manner. This one also has a
unique sweeping approach where the top and bottom notes get picked twice.
