Arpeggios are the foundation of everything we do as cellists. Unfortunately unlike our electric bass playing colleagues, we tend to start with scales first and (even worse) in our classical system we learn fingerings that in many cases are unrelated to the ones we use for our scales. This system creates a huge disconnect for cellists when it comes to outlining harmony in our improvisations and is one of the main reasons that there are so few cellists on earth who have developed a true harmonic concept on their instrument.
The Jacob’s Ladder system will teach you how to play any major scale or mode in any key anywhere on the neck by counting one, two, three!
If you are a teacher or young student beginning your creative journey, this course is a MUST WATCH!
