    Re: Major chord arpeggios

    I know a classically trained violinist who said one of his instructors was diligent in having him learn every arpeggio ( major, minor, minor 7th I'm sure there's more) in every key, so it applies to...

    Re: Looking for tips!

    not too bad- I would focus on slowing down and making sure each note is sounded correctly - also a slow metronome can't hurt (for even spacing between notes), but you are well on your way

    Re: How much do you practice?

    clearly not enough
    I used to scales often but haven't in a while
