Want to learn all the notes on the Bass?
Need help learning how to get around the neck?
I can show you all of this, using only 2 fingerings. It really is that simple. My private students all learned this exercise in one lesson, under an hour's time.
Further into the lesson I demonstrate how a simple pattern can unlock all of the secrets of mastering the fingerboard. Using diatonic 7th chords (major, minor, dominant, half-diminished) I can travel around the instrument in any key at ease! I can play all of these arpeggios with using only two fingerings (2-1 and 3-1).
For the more advanced player; take this exercise starting with an arpeggio played ascending, followed by the next one descending. You can also play this in several different keys.
DIATONIC ARPEGGIOS in the KEY OF C
C E G B (major 7th)
D F A C (minor 7th)
E G B D (minot 7th)
F A C E (major 7th)
G B D F (dominant 7th)
A C E G (minor 7th)
B D F A (half-diminished 7th)
***If you are having difficultly with this exercise, it will do you well to brush up your technique by using the methods I showcase in the lesson entitled "Warmups".
