How to practice Arpeggios
Playbassnow.com proudly presents a lesson from: Scott Devine
Add to favorites Ok, we've all been told it's imperative for us to practice our arpeggios but what you might not have been told is that it's incredibly important how you practice them.
Running arpeggios up and down the neck is fine, but just doing this will not really have any great effect on your playing. By practicing them using my continuous arpeggio exercises (explained in the following tutorials) you will find that arpeggios really unlock the mysteries of the fretboard. You'll actually start 'seeing' the arpeggios all over the neck which in-turn will stop you having to jump around the fingerboard unnecessarily as you will have whatever harmony you need under your fingers wherever you are on the neck.
These exercises are hard and it will take a lot of practice... but it really will transform your bass playing and your understanding of harmony. Work them into your daily practice routine and you will start to see the benefits. Good luck in the shed! S.
