I have made a video lesson to help anyone wanting to learn 7th arpeggios.
Arpeggios provide you with chord tones which are the essential 'building blocks' for bass lines. The notes of the arpeggio are chord tones. It is that simple!
This lesson will give you five positions in which to play the maj7 arpeggio, getting you to play in different areas of the neck. You can apply these five positions to other types of arpeggios too and use them to start on any root note.
The possibilities are endless and this is just what you need if you want to play exciting bass lines and get into playing walking bass.
New video in my Basslines series. In this one I imagine what a cross between Jaco and Joe Dart would sound like. (Spoiler - it's just a 16th shuffle with some fast triplet stuff!)
I break down the theory and technique behind the licks in the video. The transcription (tab & notation) and backing track are available to Patreon subscribers.
