Still working on the Barry Harris stuff. Got to the horizontal major triad arpeggio lesson in Frank Vignola's Modern Method course. There are actually two exercises, done on one string at a time: 1. Triad starting from root going up and down. a. Find the lowest root note (eg. C) on the string. b. Play that note, then play the 3rd and the 5th on the same string. c. Repeat the above with the next root being a 4th up (or 5th down) - thus working through the 12 keys via the Circle of Fifths, until you're back at C 2. Triad starting from the lowest note of the triad (some inversion practice) a. Find the lowest note of the triad (root, 3rd, or 5th) on the string b. Play that note, then the rest of the triad notes, then play the starting note again an octave up c. Repeat the above through the Circle of Fifths until back at C. For me this is such slow going, that I just work on one string per session. Got a fun new effect pedal (Zoia) so this weekend has seen less formal practice time and more goofing off, but hey that's life.
