Double Descending Arpeggios

Hello, and get your fingers ready for some arpeggio fun. The weather here in Texas is great. perfect for mowing the lawn, throwing rocks in buckets of water, and you guessed it, practicing arpeggios. Here is yet another exercise focused on tapping arpeggios. here we will move them a whole step at a time down the neck. We are descending only in a pattern of 4’s. Each pattern is a total of 12 notes. This sequence is played continuously, from one key to the next.
