Happy new year to everyone!
This year I've decided to put my arpeggios down once for all. However, I'm encountering some issues, and I hope the folks of this forum can help me to get this down.
First of all, I'm learning with a kind of CAGED method in my conservatory. Scales were easy, but with arpeggios I somewhat mess the diagrams in my head, and every time I try to learn them I end up frustrated and skip to another thing. But I can't keep doing this anymore!
Right now I'm studying every pattern by itself, and trying to switch roots being in the same position (so around fifth position I try to go from Cmaj7 to Fmaj7 and back). Thats fine, I can handle it. But whenever I try to add another change I'm stuck and I have to repeat my Cmaj7 pattern in fifth position, and then repeat again the new pattern (say Dmaj7 for example).
Have you encountered similar diffculties with arpeggios? Scales were not a problem at all for me, but this is really driving me crazy!
Are there any suggestions or different exercises you do to practice arpeggios?
Thank you all, and I hope 2011 brings you a lot of music and Kurt's concerts in your town! ;)
