10 LEVELS OF ARPEGGIO
10 LEVELS OF ARPEGGIO
-content/uploads/2017/12/Arpeggio-and-C-major-chord.mp3All the way up..The first exercise we learn on the harmonica is the C major arpeggio. It teaches us to play single blow notes in a special pattern, rising and falling. It also teaches us to control our breathing, develop our mouth shape (embouchure) and learn our hand hold. Eventually we can slide between the notes with one breath, coordinating our hand movement and delivering each note to a beat.

Try this for yourself. Here is the tune. sing along to it a couple of times, then try it by yourself without the sound clip.
Did you know?The term arpeggio comes from the Italian word arpeggiare. This means to play a harp. It refers to a classical stringed harp rather than a mouth harp like ours though. On a stringed harp we could easily pluck the notes of a chord one finger at a time.
And it really makes sense a lot more sense to focus on practicing the things that you actually need in your solo, so you want to practice your diatonic arpeggios in any scale you want to use in your solos, but what is more important is of course that you want to practice using the arpeggios in your solos.
The great thing about the diatonic arpeggio exercise is that it gives you A LOT of material, and the 2nd most important arpeggio for a chord is the arpeggio found on the 3rd of the chord. This is all over Bebop solos, and something you want to have in your vocabulary for sure. Again something I learned from Barry Harris.
The concept is simple: Here is a one-octave Cmaj7 arpeggio, and instead of playing the arpeggio as an ascending melody you can move the last notes down an octave to get this great melodic skip in there.
Similar to the octave displaced arpeggios this is a great melodic skill that is a great part of the Bebop language: adding skips between notes in scale melodies. Mastering this helps you get rid of endless boring scale-run licks that are closer to a cure for sleeplessness than a great Jazz lick.
I strongly agree. I am an experienced player, but I am lacking in some of the fundamentals needed to take my playing to the next level. I can learn songs from tab, but what I really need is to learn the notes of the fretboard better. Scale and arpeggio exercises would also be very helpful.
It does seem very unfair that the bass workout section has none of the technical scales, arpeggios, etc workouts. The guitar and piano pathways have a huge amount to practice but the bass players have been forgotten about.
It does seem very unfair that the guitar and piano pathway have so many workouts for scales and arpeggios etc. Why doesn't the bass pathway? I would definitely sign up for a full subscription if I knew that the bass section would have as much of the technical workouts as the guitar does. Seems very unfair to neglect the bass players...
We love the new songs and Premium + songs! But things like slapping, ghost notes (even with songs in Yousician with ghost notes) there are no lessons. Even if we don't add level 10, we could add more to levels 1-9. I'll start over if you do. I'd probably do pay for another year. Just telling you that I think more people need to know what customers are saying "on the ground", and listen to us and we'll join and pay.
