Arpeggiathlon - Melodic Minor Arpeggio Workout (minor ii-V7alt-i application)
In this short technical study I present one of my favorite arpeggio workouts within the melodic minor scale.
The exercise consists in taking a minor ii-V7alt-i progression and extracting the corresponding melodic minor tonal center for each one of the chords. In the study I have selected key of C minor so the harmonic progression will be: Dmin7(b5) | G7alt | Cmin(maj7).
The Dmin7(b5) chord is the vi harmony in the key of F melodic minor.
The G7alt chord is the vii harmony in the key of Ab melodic minor.
The Cmin(maj7) chord is the i harmony in the key of C melodic minor.
Once we extract the three different melodic minor tonal centers the goal is to play all diatonic arpeggios of each one of these tonalities within the same fretboard position and alternating the ascending and descending direction of such arpeggios.
We apply this same combination of three melodic minor keys (and their diatonic arpeggios) over all seven modal positions on the fretboard.
It is a great and very intense workout that can help you achieve the necessary technique and fretboard visualization to access this melodic vocabulary in any key and in any position.
