This is an exercise written over the changes of Stella by Starlight whose pitches are chosen from the scales used in exercise 1. Every so often rather than choosing the next pitch from the next scale position ascending or descending, I skip from chord tone to chord tone or play a several note arpeggio using only the chord tones. The rhythm used is a sequence of swung eighth notes resting every few bars. The intention here is to produce an easily played exercise that illustrates musically how to apply scale patterns and chord arpeggios in jazz improvising.
