Natural Minor: Scale / Arpeggio

Taking a break from pentatonic and moving on to some Natural Minor.
It isn’t as big a leap as I had anticipated, as the bones are the same.

Here is the current exercise routine:

  • Starting in one position of a key, locate roots, play root-to-root ascending and descending.
  • Play expanded box position ascending and descending.
  • Play expanded box position quadruplet sequencing ascending/descending.
  • Play expanded box position using legato, one pick per string ascending/descending.
  • Play arpeggio  correlating to position (okay to venture out a little).
  • Repeat for other positions across fretboard.
  • Repeat for other keys.

Would like to further incorporate somehow / needs further emphasis:

  • Move out of box positions, incorporate more horizontal movement.
  • More readily identify relative root locations across positions.
  • Readily identify 3rd and 5th degrees in addition to the root.
  • Triads.
