Djangology arpeggio exercises

Postby Thrip » Mon Dec 07, 2009 7:22 pm

I've uploaded a video to youtube of a couple of arpeggio exercises based on the chords of "Djangology"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWsZ7oe6LOw

You can get a pdf of the chords, melody, both exercises (in notation and tab) plus the backing track on the "lessons" section of my website:

Nice changes Tim, I'd been using Amaj/C#,Cdim, Gmaj/B, Bbdim for the 1st 4 bars which now sounds a bit plain. I like the use of space in the solo, lets it breath nicely.

Thanks for posting this, much appreciated.

Hi Tim, any chance of you doing a vid of Topsy using the Wremble track? It's a tune which has simple changes but I can never seem to get a satisfying improv together to my ears. I think it's a tune which requires a lot of tension/ resolution. Would love to hear your interpretation? Cheers, Rich

I know what you mean. Often the simpler one's are the more difficult! I'll have a go at it. Probably not until the new year though.

This is good stuff. I don't think anyone's doing a better job of explaining and increasing access to this music. Merry Christmas.

the main focus of my practice this last week has been the first upward moving half of the arpeggio/scalar exercise on your page - i can do it with my eyes closed now fairly smoothly about 85bpm, and have started transposing to different keys higher up and lower down the neck

i am starting on learning the downward phase now and will integrate this into the longer pattern - definitely some trickier fingering there going back down, i've been sticking to one finger per fret on the upward moving section, but this doesn't seem to be possible going back down so i've been using the 3rd finger in place of the little finger when i'm stepping down strings from the little finger to same fret but lower string, if you get me

the general idea you are working with has also been quite inspiring, and i've got some ideas where i could take this exercise to after i master this version

thanks again dude

:D

excellent! it is so useful to have such an amazing load of learning resources right at my fingertips, lookin forward to more lessons

having the pdf files is really really helpful in learning the patterns mate

it's gonna take time but i'm gonna work my way thru em all eventually
