BASS GUITAR, Multimedia tutorials, Scales & Arpeggios, How 2 Play Bass
A major 7th arpeggio (M7) consists of a root/tonic, a major third, a perfect fifth and a major seventh. If you transpose its five chord diagrams into a different key, the tonic (white circle) will be your point of reference. Especially in rock, pop, heavy metal or jazz, major 7th arpeggios are the ideal melodic tool for comping (accompanying) major 7th chords. This course provides a video of the five positions of the major 7th arpeggio, a technical exercise to get accustomed to them, and nine grooves and basslines for putting them into practice by playing them along to backing tracks.
