Touring bassist, educator and Elixir Strings artist Michael Mondesir makes things really easy in this short bass lesson with a demonstration of how to play bass arpeggios in two octaves using just two fingers. By taking things slowly at first and then applying the principle to both major, minor (and even more advanced) chord types, you’ll quickly build confidence in playing all over the fingerboard. Michael plays Elixir Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating for their great tone that lasts and lasts. Check them out: https://www.elixirstrings.com/products
If you’re a little intimidated by learning bass arpeggios, you’re not alone. But despite the complicated sounding name, an arpeggio is simply the notes of a chord played individually, one at a time. Learning how to play bass arpeggios and practicing them in all keys is a great way of unlocking the fretboard and helping you create interesting basslines that stray from the root note!
