Kiko Loureiro's roots in Brazilian, Latin, Fusion, Jazz, Metal and Classical music influence his masterful compositions and stlye. In this program, Kiko shows you a method for using arpeggios to craft amazing leads and melodies. He starts with major and minor arpeggios and triad voicings and builds them into progressions. Then expands on this concept with major arpeggio extensions adding the 7th and 9th and shows how to complete the mission by delivering full dominant and diminished arpeggios in single and cross string technique.
In this instructional video, Kiko has numerous aspects inspiring to develop creativity and expand the musical ideas on the six strings. With an extensive range of sophisticated technical information, Kiko shows how it is possible to transit through the rock virtuoso, jazz scales, while maintaining a genuinely Brazilian musicality. Numerous examples of exercises show how to achieve the accuracy and agility techniques with alternate picking, sweep, linked hands among many others. The guitarist also explores and demonstrates more sophisticated harmonic concepts and different scales, as well as fine examples of conduct, taken collectively and harmony of style and Brazil.

Born in Porto Alegre, South of Brazil, I was exposed to a strong mixed culture of music from Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. I started to play guitar in my childhood, at the age 13 and under influence by Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I took private lessons and few years later I started to teach in some music schools in Porto Alegre and by doing that I got involved in projects like guitar clinics, master classes and I also become a session player. Besides that, I was also studying music and I graduated in Music Performance and later on in Guitar & Technology, Music Pedagogy. I am also an orchestrator certified by Berklee USA.
