In this video, Hayes Griffin shows you how to spice up the fiddle tune “Angeline the Baker” with some right hand arpeggiation, also known as “crosspicking.”
In Mandolin Secrets Academy you’ll find:
- Sheet music/tabs
- Play-a-long track
Here is an arpeggio exercise I got from the bluegrass mandolin star, Sierra Hull.
We are playing triads for the Harmonized Major Scale in the key of A, and this is a closed position pattern you can move around on different parts of the fretboard, to play in all keys.
It’s a great exercise...
In this video, Hayes Griffin teaches a cool exercise called “walking arpeggios”. This is very good for strengthening your improvisation muscle and the ability to outline chord changes. We’re specifically applying this technique to the bluegrass tune Whiskey Before Breakfast.
In this video, I show you an arpeggio etude to expand your knowledge of the fretboard. We’re playing the same major arpeggio, 1-2-3-5, for all major chords, back cycling through the circle of fifths. Sheet music/tabs and audio version for this etude you’ll find in Mandolin...
In this video I show you how to use the two string arpeggios I call diamonds. I use them to get a cool sound to modal improvisation and soloing.
In this video lesson I’m showing you how to use arpeggios to solo on the Gypsy Swing classic Minor Swing by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
