We will start with an Amaj7#11 Lydian Chord

Now we will connect 3rds with simple 2 finger and 1 finger fretting. We in turn create a superimposed arpeggio that is very easy to alternate pick with speed and precision.

Descending, we will land on either the G# [Maj7] or the F# [13th]

We can apply apply the same principles to minor keys. Here we will start with Dm7. Notice the Minor 3rds in the fretting hand fingering employing fingers 1 and 3.

We can now make it much more interesting by making it Dminor with the added Major7 [or D melodic minor] by mixing the major and minor 3rd intervals with our simple 2 finger fingering.

Now let’s look at Gmaj#11

We will now use our simple 3rds connecting superimposition technique and create an arpeggio ideal for alternate picking over this chord.

We will now take this further by sharpening the 5th and flattening the 9th with our simple fingering.

This creates a beautiful Lydian chord with a sharpened 5th and adds colour and moves onwards to a sense of musical freshness.

This is just a taste of what is available with superimposition in regards to major and minor 3rds that are readily available on the guitar fingerboard. The possibilities are there for the taking and with a creative imagination and ear many interesting and advanced combo’s can be had.
