To do a series of little etudes for
you, the basic arpeggio exercises in
the low positions with the inversions.
Now that we've shown you what they were,
here's what they sound like as
we go around the key circle.
We're going from C in
the cycle of fourths.
And so we'll play C F B-flat, E-flat,
A-flat, D-flat, G-flat B E A D G.
Okay.
Here we go.
And I'm gonna play these,
as if I was playing a piece of music.
So, I might stretch the time
a little bit here and there.
I'm gonna try to play it
like a melodic etude.
Here we go.
