Using the same four diatonic chords (Cmaj7, Ami7, Dmi7, and G7) in the same rhythmic pattern of one chord per beat against a jazz shuffle feel, let's try working with this melodic pattern: C E G B up, then G E C A down using strings 6-3 in 2nd position. The ascending pattern is a C major 7 arpeggio, while the descending pattern outlines A minor 7. For a little variation, use C E G B up then G E G(held). We've extended things to two more strings, one lower and one higher, but we're still staying in the same basic area of the fingerboard for now. Here's the downloadable slower drum track again: If you're starting to get the hang of Lesson #1, you can start working on this as well.
