Diminished Arpeggio Shawn Lane Tab
Shawn lane liked to use 3-notes-per-string diminished patterns.
Diminished patterns and licks are very simple to create due to how simple diminished harmony is. The easiest way to visualize diminished harmony is on a single string.
Choose a root note, such as the 3rd fret of the low E string (the G note), and continue to move up 3 frets at a time, which = moving in minor 3rds.
This would give you frets 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, and 24, resulting in a diminished arpeggio.
As you can see in the Shawn Lane tab, as you move to the left on the fretboard, and move from one string to the next string, you’ll move down in half-steps but continue with the same left-hand diminished pattern/fingering.
