Yes sir your lessons have been a great help. I have learned so much from your teaching, I can only hope there is more to come.
we still have 2nd and 3rd inversion to work on then we will apply the major 7th arpeggio to a song.  ;)

I can hold down the first inversion at 200 bpm for about 40 seconds but before my fingers lose their muscle memory. Working on building consistency for at least one minute.

I can hold down the combination of the root and 1st conversion at 200 bpm for about a minute and a half. I am not done yet.

We played the root position 1-3-5-7, first inversion 3-5-7-1 and now the second inversion 5-7-1-3. Keep in mind we're still playing the DMj7 arpeggio.

This is the last inversion of the D Major 7th arpeggio, the 3rd inversion ( 7-1-3-5 ) starting on the B string at the second fret.

                                                                               USE IT OUR LOSE IT!

Now you have 4 option to use when your playing a "Major 7th arpeggio. We worked with the "D Major 7th arpeggio but you can apply the same finger pattern to any major 7th arpeggio. FIND A SPOT TO USE IT IN EVERY SONG YOU PLAY! IF YOU DON'T USE IT YOU WILL LOSE IT!

I'ii put up a simple song soon but for now play all four inversion together at 100 bpm 4 times. After you have completed that than  start the whole presses over again, this time in a different key. ;)

I was invited to play at an afternoon service today at a church I never played at before. I try my best to follow the keyboard player but I couldn't. I was listening for the progressions and every time I though I had it I didn't!!! the keyboard player was playing some fat chords and he was allover the keyboard and my ears couldn't grab hold of what he was doing. So I started to play solo...solo that they couldn't hear me. :(. You win some and you lose some this time I lost... but the battle is not over I will rise again!! :)

Man, that can be kinda rough if you never heard the songs and/or the way the keyboardist played them plus they followed no discernable pattern.  Some of the contemporary music keyboardists can come up with the weirdest chords, even for a known song. Even to the point that you don't recognize the song.  I don't envy your day at the program.  I can play lower than solo.  It is a key called Bb-voiceless.

Iv'e been in that situation a few times myself.  If i can't hear the the progression and the keyboardist is not telling me anything i just wont play for that song.

I'm playing all four inversions at 200 bpm!

I haven't posted for a while but I am still here. I have all inversions under my fingers.  We're waiting on you, teach.  If I keep this up, I might actually learn to play the bass.

Waiting for the teacher to step back into the classroom with the next lesson, ;D... I would like to post this question, I'm looking purchase some type practice tool that plugs into a wall outlet, that comes with a usb port for downloading songs from my computer, that loops, and has a metronome, any suggestions? I currently practice thru a yamaha mix board when my computer is on, but there are times when I get home from work(12:30a.m.) and would just like to practice by just plugging this ?? into a wall outlet, tune, and go. Like to keep the cost under $175.00. Thxs in advance.
