Playing Through Changes with Arpeggios: Exercises for Bassists

(Side note: I’m frequently asked about the software I’m using in these videos. The software I’m using for the changes here is iRealb, available for iOS and Mac. You can my review of this app here).

How do you practice using tunes out of the real book? Let us know in the comments.
