Chord Tone Etude #2 for Trumpet | Exercise of the Week #49

Download the PDF of “Chord Tone Etude #2“ For this Exercise of the Week, Bryan Davis presents a new Chord Tone Etude based on the harmonic progression of a well-known bebop standard – “Confirmation.” The note choices are limited to the basic chord tones (root, 3rd, 5th, 7th only) indicated by the chord symbols, which are included. When learning new tunes, it can be extremely useful to arpeggiate through the changes to develop a sense of the voice leading, particularly if you are not proficient on the piano, or another chordal instrument. By incorporating direction changes, and different inversions of the arpeggios, you can arrive at something “almost melodic” like this! Missed Chord Tone Etude #1?
