3. Chords and Arpeggios – Sunday, February 21, 5:00 PM EST
Lots of folks who play melody instruments get a little lost when we talk about chords. But recognizing common chords and how your part fits into them is important to lots of aspects of performance – not least of which is tuning! In this session we’ll learn how to identify common chords and practice ways of hearing and recognizing them, even if your instrument can only play one note at a time. We’ll also work on arpeggios (which are, after all, just broken chords) and practice hearing the whole chord when playing it only one note at a time. Besides being great technical exercises, getting common chords under your fingers is important preparation for reading from a lead sheet or improvising harmonies.
