Symmetric Boomerang Arpeggios (Minor 7 Arpeggio Workout)
In this melodic arpeggio workout I present one of my very favorite ways to practice and internalize the material covered in my study Symmetric Boomerang Arpeggios (minor) when building and designing a targeted guitar practice regimen and workout routine.
The 2 notes per string melodic split that these arpeggio fingerings utilize is very efficient for swift and fast harmonic changes and as the arpeggio architecture changes to intervals of a 4th on its higher register, any melodic sequence within the fingering also benefits from a flavor change as the phrase evolves. Also, this makes the fingering symmetrical on every 2 adjacent strings on the instrument.
The workout consists of completing a cycle of 4ths with all 12 minor 7 chords without stopping and only using the "min7" arpeggios presented in my main study "Symmetric Boomerang Arpeggios." As these arpeggios are two and a half to three octaves in range, we assure the full exploration and coverage of the entire fretboard - from the lowest to the highest position.
The key here is to use all inversions of the arpeggio shapes which will allow us to connect one harmony to the next in the shortest melodic distance possible. This way our starting and finishing points when we transition between all 12 "minor 7" chords will pretty much be within 3 to 4 frets maximum.
This exercise is also ideal for stamina, endurance, technique, hand coordination and finger independence.
