In today's featured video, I'm going to be sharing with you seven incredible runs and arpeggios that you can apply immediately in your jazz vocabulary. Not only do these exercises help you utilize the entire keyboard, but they are also helpful ideas that you can draw upon during improvisation.
In order to learn these runs and arpeggios, I recommend sitting down at your keyboard with the video open and really getting each exercise in your fingers before moving on to the next. A helpful tip is that you can actually slow the video down by clicking the settings button and choosing a slower speed to help you follow along. To further ingrain these patterns in your brain I also recommend trying them in a few different keys aside from the example I play in. This will help you commit the sound and feel of these different arpeggios to memory, rather than simply learning a couple of licks that you just end up repeating during solos. By practicing in other keys, you also may be more inclined to vary the exercises and notes within the run based on the context you are playing in.
These runs and arpeggios are my personal favorite selections from my 30 Sick Runs and Arpeggios digital PDF booklet, which you can find at jazzpianoconcepts.com/store. This PDF is full of high intensity arpeggio exercises for adding modern shapes to your vocabulary, fast.
If you have any questions about how or when to integrate these licks into your playing, feel free to leave me a comment and I'd be happy to help you out!
