College music instructor Victoria Harris demonstrates an
"arpeggio," a broken chord. To perhaps understand it better, she
explained that it comes from the term arpe for harp and when you
run your fingers across the strings (or play keys on the piano
within say, a C chord) it is a broken, yet pretty, sound rather
than a specific set of notes.
