You probably already practice arpeggios, but chances are you can do it better as a scale exercise than what you are doing now, and that is what I want to talk about in this video. Jazz scale exercises should be about giving you the material you can use in your solos and help you know and play the different arpeggios and melodies found in the scale.

When you improvise in jazz then the lines or melodies that you play are related to the chords you are playing over, and the solo follows the chord progression it is played over. One easy way to do this is to use the arpeggios of each chord.

You can use the arpeggio of the chord you are playing over, but in fact, there are more options than this and the exercise in this lesson will help you tie all of that together in one exercise!!
