Weekly Warm Up No. 14
This week will begin our arpeggios with some of our basic patterns for the right hand. We will be tweaking a few familiar patterns allowing us to focus on alternation between the following combinations:
- i & m
- m & a
- i & a
For left hand slurs, we will use a simple single string patterns to refine our hammer ons & pull offs.
Quarter note set @ 80 BPM.
Right Hand Arpeggios:
(Based on this A Major Chord Progression )
- Pimi mimi
- Pmim imim
- Pmam mama
- Pama amam
- Piai aiai
- Paia iaia
Left Hand Slurs: Single String Patterns
Ascending: 12 23 34 34 34
Descending: 43 43 43 32 21
Our tremolo work will continue to include speed bursts. The focus here is with gaining a relaxed state of control as we develop our speed. The faster the tempo, the more efficient (relaxed) you need to be with your hands.
Single string: pami on 2
Single string with crossing: pami on 3 & 2
Multi-string: p on 5 & 3, ami on 2
I’m also including some tutorials I’ve created around Arpeggios, Ascending Slurs (Hammer On’s), and Descending Slurs (Pull-Off’s).
