Arpeggios contain the building blocks for bass players. We can use the chord tones (the notes of the arpeggio) to create walking bass lines. These chord tones outline the chord and that's our job as bass players for the rest of the band particularly when playing Jazz.


There are five essential 7th arpeggios that you need to know if you want to play Jazz bass. Once you known their fretboard shapes, you can transfer them to start on any root note.


The names of these 7th arpeggios like, 'maj7' or 'dominant 7' can cause confusion so I've made a lesson to clear this up and to lay out all the five arpeggios.


Find out more in my latest Youtube lesson. There is a free downloadable PDF cheatsheet with all five 7th arpeggios on it. Link under video.
