Are you using the arpeggios in your playing when you are improvising?
The arpeggios are a very big part of the jazz vocabulary. In almost all jazz phrases is a triad, four or five note arpeggio present. To get the sound of jazz you should also incorporate this into your playing.
In this video I will take you through some great ways how to practise and how to use some of the many arpeggios present in jazz.
The practise material and the examples I give will all be on the great original of Kenny Dorham – “Blue Bossa”
