I have been lax on doing videos but plan to get back to them over the coming months starting with this one today. By the way, thank you to the 20,000 YouTube subscribers I have (I just noticed I went over that threshold). If you are not a subscriber and want easy access to maybe a hundred videos like this one, here is the channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/howlegh1
This is a simple concept that makes a big difference. An arpeggio is simply a broken chord (playing the notes in the chord separately). An open arpeggio (my own term) is an arpeggio where there is lots of space between the notes that are played separately. Ideally, you normally want 5th or sixths between those notes though that becomes less important the higher on the piano you go.
