'What else?'

Time to work on extensions (4 note arpeggios). Take your basic major triad: 1 3 5. Add a 7: 1 3 5 7 = major 7, e.g. CM7 = C E G B.

Go up and back. Grow it: 1 3 1 3 5 3 1 3 5 7 5 3

Learn in all keys. Mess around with articulation, note values, dynamics.

Repeat in minor: 1 b3 5 b7  [overachievers: add 1 b3 5 7]

You’ve already practiced the 4 note arpeggio for the dominant: 1 3 5 b7

Let’s add one more and go to the 9th. Major: 1 3 5 7 9. CM9 = C E G B D

Now in minor: 1 b3 5 b7 9 [overachievers add 1 b3 5 7 9].

Now extend the dominant 7th: 1 3 5 b7 9. C9 = C E G Bb D

Mess around, etc. until all extended arpeggios in all keys are fluent.

Make into duets with a partner. Or: Player One plays the arpeggio, Player Two plays the scale. Switch off.
