Practice the arpeggio in one octave before adding another octave immediately following the first. Step 1:?Locate the Notes of the Arpeggio --------------------------------------------------------------------- Begin by learning the scales of the xylophone. Musicians will need to locate the arpeggio's major third and perfect fifth. G major arpeggio's major third is B and the perfect fifth is D.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExXsnxn-ZdY??Locate those notes in the scale of G by starting with the G note. Start with G and play three notes to the right. The note you end on is the major third. In this case (playing a G major arpeggio) you will stop on B. From B play three notes to the right again. This note is D which is the perfect fifth of G major arpeggio.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExXsnxn-ZdY? Step 2: Practice the G Major Arpeggio --------------------------------------------------------------------- Play each note in the arpeggio - G, B, D and G. Remember the technique of crossing each stick over the other as you play each note. Practice with one octave until you have mastered it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExXsnxn-ZdY? Try adding a second octave after the first. When you are comfortable with playing two octaves in succession, play each octave then play backwards to the first octave.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExXsnxn-ZdY?
