- 1An arpeggio usually is a succession of notes in a chord played in a key.In a C major scale, there are C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and C. If a chord has the tonic, the third, and the fifth step in a C major chord, then the arpeggio for this scale will be C, E, G, C, G, E, C. These notes form the outline, or chord, within the scale.Advertisement
- 3For this exercise, let's play C, E, G, C, C, C, C, G, E, and C.Let's play the same exercise in each key from C major to F# major. The first three notes of the arpeggio are slurred and the top four notes are single-tongued. The ending notes will also be slurred. This exercise covers the basic arpeggios for the mid-range register on the trumpet.Advertisement
