Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

August 11, 2014 | Final 'Reverse' Drills: Dorian/Minor Arpeggios

We posted our final "Reverse" FFcP in last week's Tips and Tricks column. Recall, we were looking at escaping the reliance of always starting drills with the root and always going up. We did scales in both Major and Dorian/Minor, and we did one on Major FFcP Arpeggios. Our last drill was Arpeggios in the Dorian/Minor mode.

This is great stuff to get into your fingers and ears. Ultimately it will reside in your brain, as well.
