Weekly Warm Up No. 3
Welcome to week 3 of the the WWU!
This week we’re focusing on arpeggio patterns that have a particular accented note to simulate bringing out a melodic line, descending 3-note slurs, and building some finger independence with a classic exercise from Scott Tennant’s Pumping Nylon.
Quarter Note set @ 80 BPM.
Right Hand Arpeggios:
(Based on the A Major Pattern Outlined Here)
P on 5 & 3, ami on 2
Left Hand Slurs: Ascending (Hammer Ons)
- 421 431
- 321 432
Left Hand Finger Independence: Odair’s Favorite Drill
I’m also including some tutorials I’ve created around Arpeggios, Ascending Slurs (Hammer On’s), and Descending Slurs (Pull-Off’s).
