Bass day (1h 30m)

  • Chord tones / Walking bass
    • Major & minor 7th chords around the cycle of 4ths in all inversions, permutations used: 1-3-7-5, 3-1-7-5
    • Inverted arpeggios in permutations + “splits”: play first three tones in higher register, slide down to play the last one, start second arpeggio in lower register and slide back on the last tone, e. g.:
      • 1-3-7-5 permutation, 2nd inversion: C2 — E2 — B1 — G1 (D string) → F1 (D string) — A1 — E1 — C0 (E string) → Bb1 (D string) — D1… and so on around the  cycle of 4ths
    • Walking with inversions & permutations
      • A Beautiful Friendship in Eb (trying to stick to this standard for a while)
