Weekly Warm Up No. 37
Happy Mother’s Day to those that celebrate it.
Keeping this week’s thoughts brief. I do want to share this Map of the World’s Lighthouses which I found through the amazing Laura Olin and promptly sent to my friend who has begun to learn to sail. Are you learning anything new?
We’re in our second week of favorite right hand arpeggios and left hand slurs. I also added in the synchronization drill introduced this past winter.
Quarter Note set @ 100 BPM.
Right Hand Arpeggios:
(Based on the A Major Pattern Outlined Here)
- Pmim amim
- Pmam imam
Left Hand Slurs
- Ascending Single String: 121 232 343 (triplets)
- Descending Single String: 434 323 212 (triplets)
Synchronization Drills: Single String
1234 | 4321 | 1434 | 2434
I’m also including some tutorials I’ve created around Arpeggios, Ascending Slurs (Hammer On’s), and Descending Slurs (Pull-Off’s).
