TIP: A Karimba Improvisational Strategy Part 2

Giving the left thumb some good ideas – an arpeggio

Up and down the A major arpeggio

This exercise reduces the notes further and only plays the notes in the A major arpeggio. These will often be the most important notes for the left thumb, as they trace out the A major chord.

The long range plan in this series: the right thumb will play something low, strong, and supportive while the left thumb plays a dancing melody. Ultimately, I’d like you to be able to improvise on the left side.

This exercise lays the foundation for the left thumb dancing.
