Daily Practice 6: Major 7ths and Altered

In this video I warm up using Major 7th chords in a broken arpeggio and Altered Scales in each key.  I like warming up each day with something easy and slow, usually using a metronome.  I try to play something I know and can hear well and at a tempo that allows me to play the material fairly accurately.  I always feel that working on structure, that is, basics like 7th chords and scales slowly will always benefit your musicianship and ears.  After I do a brief warm up of about 5 to 10 minutes I like to take a break, drink water, put the horn down and plan out what I’ll practice next.

~Enjoy!
