Chromatic approach to arpeggios

Postby Yann » Sun Oct 01, 2006 3:25 am

Hello,

I've added a new section to my site about this often heard aspect of Gypsy playing. I hope you'll find it useful.

Feedback or comments welcome, if any. ;)

hmm... im just taking a stab at this but I would call it "rotational approach to chord triads". i really like how you show the minor and major triad versions of this concept. also, over dominant chords this becomes very powerful because you can also use tri-tone subs right?

ive been practicing this lately as I just figured this out only about a month ago! :?

It looks like what's usually called an enclosure pattern, or encirclement (as in you're encircling the target note with two other notes). Michael has a free lesson on his site about it:

Best,

Hi Jack,

It is sure a well-known pattern, it is really very much used in Gypsy music. I think I'll update my page as "enclosure pattern" sounds much better than the misleading "chromatic approach".

I'll soon add another lick from Biréli in that section that alternates between encircling notes of different triad notes.

Djangology,

I'm not sure I understand what you mean with tri-tone sub. Can you elaborate please ?
