Move the root note up and down the fretboard and figure out the other chords as you move. You can use the blank guitar fret board illustrations to come up with your own chords.
Arpeggio Exercise in C Major
The illustration below shows an arpeggio exercise using the chords of C, Dm, F and G. This exercise should be mastered. The fingering has been included for most of the chords.
