Arpeggios not built in 3rds?

"Ultimate Arpeggio 3 Note Combinations" is meant as a guide to help you explore 3 note combinations both familiar and new. Most students have worked with arpeggios that are built in thirds which are included in this study but you also get many other less discussed 3 note groupings that give very intriguing sounds. Since many of the sounds found in this book will be new to students it is recommended that you divide your time between technical exercises that will develop your physical ability on your instrument and ear training studies to help you get the sounds of these combinations into your memory so that you can express them freely.

What's are these other 3 note arpeggios that aren't built in 3rds?

There are many books that discuss the use of arpeggios in music. Unfortunately most of these only discuss chords that are built in thirds. While chords built in thirds are very common in music there are also other arpeggios that are not built in thirds that are commonly used and they can be a great resource for finding new melodic and chordal ideas to play over various musical situations. You can approach the use of these non-tertial (a chord or melody not built in thirds) combinations in a couple of ways: think of the non-tertial group of notes as a replacement for a tertial (a chord or melody built in thirds) arpeggio. For instance, if you had the notes C, E, G you could replace those with C, D, G in most musical situations. In many cases this will give you a more modern sound while still representing the initial triadic sound of C, E, G. You can also extend this idea when you start composing music in which you are only using these non-triadic combinations. This creates a very intriguing sound both melodically and harmonically. Depending on the three note combination you pick it can result in many different types of sounds from beautiful consonant music to highly dissonant. These non-triadic combinations can be used in any style of music from rock to jazz to classical. They all work well but keep in mind that the combination you pick will radically affect the type of sound you are trying to create. To see some examples of using these non-tertial combinations check out the book “Tools for Modern Improvisation” which will give you scores and MP3s in various musical styles, in which you can hear some music using these different non-triadic combinations.

Here is a list of exactly what is contained in the course:

So this is a far reaching course that gives you information on:

  • All types of 3 note groupings
  • 18 melodic combinations for each 3 note grouping

  • How to use these new sounds to replace the arpeggios and chords you currently use.

It is recommended that you listen to the Level 3 example first because the faster these types of melodies are played the more our ear makes sense of them. Count off is two measures of half notes playing a C to establish the key center.
  • Level Two MP3 for example above
  • Level 3 for example above
  • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to the unique sound these various 3 note combinations create. Remember you can play these examples at any tempo... Super slow or extremely fast with the midifiles that accompany this course.
  • Listen to the interesting sound that these "027" 3 note grouping make over this chord progression. Click triangle above to see dropdown score. It is recommended that you listen to the Level 3 example first because the faster these types of melodies are played the more our ear makes sense of them. Count off is two measures of half notes playing a Db to establish the key center.
  • Level Two MP3 for example above
  • Level 3 for example above
  • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to the unique sound these various 3 note combinations create. Remember you can play these examples at any tempo... Super slow or extremely fast with the midifiles that accompany this course.
