Arpeggio Exercises

Postby Thrip » Mon Jun 22, 2009 6:13 pm

I've made a couple of instruction videos on youtube. They are arpeggio exercises over some common chord progressions. You can get a pdf of them plus backing track at my website.

One is over the chords of Minor Swing:

The other is a basic turnaround in C major:

Hope some of you find them useful!

basic turnaround in C major: sounds like the intro to "Mr. Sandman" - which is another fun tune in C.

Good stuff! thanks for sharing,

Cheers

Thanks Thrip - so say I want to do a solo for Minor Swing I'd use those arpeggios the same way I'd use a penatonic scale for blues, IOW just paint different pictures using those notes. yes ?
thanks again

Thanks so much for the tab/arpeggios for minor swing - you make things easy to grasp unlike some other material I've seen.

Thrip, a thanks as well, from across the pond, fantastic resource. Not sure when I'll be commuting to West London, or I'd buy you a pint or several from Churchill Arms....(miss my Porter, Pride and ESB, as fresh as it gets)....
