The 5 string arpeggio follows the same pattern as the 6 string arpeggio, although this time the first note starts on the 5th string rather than the 6th. This arpeggio pattern will be used over all root 5 or 5 string chords, such as A Major, B Major & C Major. This also includes all A shape bar chords up the neck of the guitar
