Minor Guitar Arpeggios Minor guitar arpeggios are the notes of minor chords played one at a time. There are a lot of ways to play minor arpeggios on the neck of the guitar, but this guitar lesson will cover some of the most basic forms. You might want to look at the Arpeggios for Guitar Primer before digging into this guitar lesson. It will teach you the basics of both playing arpeggios on the guitar, and how to read the arpeggio charts. Minor Guitar Arpeggio Basics Each minor arpeggio form is going to have 2 versions. The numbering system for the functions is based on how the notes compare to a major scale with the same root. But if you see 1, b3, 5 then the b3 is a half step (1 fret) lower than the 3rd note a the major scale with the same root. Even if you don’t fully understand the theory behind the functions at this point, you can still get started with learning the arpeggio forms…and worry about that later.

Educational Materials | The Outside Shore I suppose every blogger with a smartphone or tablet has this idea that it might be good idea to share a list of their favorite apps. You’d the think the world would have had enough of these articles, yet I constantly get questions from people, especially with regard to my iPad – “what do you really use that thing for?” I’m going to try to keep my list reasonably focused: the apps that actually help me in my day to day activities as a professional jazz musician and educator. Some, of course, will be very specific to music. Others are more general, but I’ll try to describe how they can be of use to musicians and educators specifically. You’ll note there is relatively little in the way of hardcore “content creation” apps here. But even a laptop is more hardware than I want to carry around most of the time. Some apps I tend to use more on my iPhone, others I tend to use more on my iPad, and others still I use on both equally. Music Apps Set List Maker iReal Pro unrealBook Pro Metronome GarageBand
