Everybody can play a Cmaj7 arpeggio, but not everybody can do it like Charlie Parker!!

Knowing and using arpeggios is a part of jazz, but there are a lot of ways to create great melodies with them. In this video I am going to go over 5 ways that Charlie Parker used arpeggios in his solos. If there is one place you want to learn this it is probably from the father of Bebop!!

And you do want to have some ideas that are not just running up and down the arpeggio or up the arpeggio and down the scale which is exactly what this video can show you!!

We often forget that the difficult part is not what notes to play over a chord, it is how to play them. For me this is something that I have learned from transcribing and analyzing solos like I am doing in this video!!

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this Charlie Parker lesson interesting and helpful!!
