Arpeggios, modes and extended chords
Advanced exercises from the coursesThere’s a lot of material to get through in the advanced course. You’ve got the seven modes and the four arpeggios. There are seventeen technical exercises and not mention, the acoustic songs!
Worth noticing is the connection between all this and what you learned during your intermediate studies.
A barre chord can easily be extended to a 7th note chord, all modes are built by adding notes to the pentatonic shapes you already know. The chromatic and sweeping exercises are developed by having more complex rhythms.
