How to use "The Sultan's Triads"

The most common use of these arpeggios, is for improvising over a particular chord. The first thing that we are going to take a look at is some common hammer-on and pulloff combinations. The result is some fast, easy licks. For the purpose of demonstration, I am going to write all of these licks using the basic major arpeggio shape below. You will be able to apply all of the finger movements and picking to all of the shapes you have learned on the previous pages.
