More practice! More exercises! This episode discussed arpeggios, so let's look at those.

1) Identify the chords being arpeggiated in the following example. (Hint: The chord changes every other beat.) While you're at it, why not apply what we've covered earlier and figure out which chords are tonic and which are dominant?

2) Identify the following chords, then write an Alberti Bass pattern to play underneath it. You can use the given voicings as a guideline if you want, or try different shapes.

 3) Write your own arpeggiated piece! Try the chord progression below, or one of your own composition. Remember to try some of the variations we discussed in the video, like different accents, rhythms, and passing tones.

And that's it! See you next week!
