now we're going to the major 7th
And these are good because they not only
get us oriented up and
down the neck but also across the neck.
So, it helps us with the patterns and then
this is a great sound,
I just love the sound of the major
You've heard that sound before, but it's a
very pretty sound.
So, when we do the same exercise that we
used before in the minor 7th,
we're gonna use, we're gonna take this
Walk it up and down the neck.
So here we go again, 70 beats per minutes
this is the one note per beat, major 7
One, two, three, four
[SOUND] Now isn't that cool so
now check out how cool it sounds when we
do two beats,
two notes per beat here we go, one, two,
[SOUND] So what you're gonna do is
continue and do three notes per beat and
four notes per beat and you'll be amazed
at how cool that sounds.
Now if you think that's cool, let's see
what it sounds like doing
the arpeggio starting from the major
seventh and working our way down.
So instead of going up like this [SOUND],
we're gonna do, start with this [SOUND]
we'll do, go back to one note per
beat again and it goes like this,
one, two, three, four
Okay now lets check how it sounds
2 notes per beat, here we go.
One, two, three, four.
Isn't that cool?
And the great thing about these exercises
practicing like this is not only are we
making our fingers stronger and
we're learning our way around the neck and
we're learning our way across the neck but
it actually is very musical as well.
So when we go to play these and at a good
tempo a fast tempo they sound pretty cool.
You know and
people think okay that sounds great.
So we have is the arpeggiated exercises
and it's actually the same
exercise whether we start on the way up
or if we start coming down like that.
It just sounds a little bit different and
it also gives your fingers just a little
different combination of notes but
it just sounds cool as we're coming down,
or as we're going up.
It's your choice and
it's also when you're soloing and when
you're making music.
A lot of times if, you have the choice of
which octave you're gonna start and
whether you're going to go up or come
So those are all the things that keep
So again, that was the, our arpeggiated
major seventh exercise
