Practicing Diminished Arpeggios
Playbassnow.com proudly presents a lesson from: Adam Neely
Add to favorites Hey all, here is the next in a series of lessons covering a lot of the technical and conceptual concepts with practicing arpeggios across the bass’ fingerboard. Pay close attention to the ideas regarding shifting across the fingerboard – this is something that is almost completely neglected in the majority of method resources for electric bass, and is something that is very important to practice. Arpeggios are the best musical element to practice this physical concept.
Diminished arpeggios are rather tricky just because they aren't that easy to visualize, and starting on the pinky often leads to rather inefficient fingering if you're looking to ascend on the fretboard. They're nice, though, because they're the first time so far where it really makes sense to use the third finger a lot because of the tritone.
