I was just doing some practicing and memorising Major 7 Arp Shapes and I noticed these have some awkward patterns.
I am a bit stumped to the advice given on Justin's page here
He says never to Barre when playing Arpeggios(in the Tips For Learning paragraph), but some of these Maj7 patterns I find my self rolling my fingers over to the next note. I can't see how you can avoid this or whether that rolling would be classed as Barring?
Pattern 3 I roll my index finger from the G string to the B srtring on those notes (both ascending and descending)
Pattern 4 I roll my 3rd finger from the G string to the B string (both ascending and descending) .
I haven't even entertained Pattern 2 yet. Eeeeek!
If, like Justin says, you use only the tips of your fingers, I would find in these Maj7 patterns that you would be kind of "Jumping Strings" or "Hopping onto Notes"and it sounds sort of disjointed.
Is the rolling of the fingers a bad habit?
