Modal Arpeggio Patterns for Bass

We’re continuing our exercise series this week with a lesson on modal arpeggio patterns. Learning modes, scales, and patterns help to open the fretboard up in your mind. You learn the connections, intervals, and relationships of the notes.

Some of this sounds more complicated than it is. Hang in there and we will work it all out.

If you’re interested in more on this and other subjects, you can check out Damian’s instructional book, The Improviser’s Path.
