This course is helping my guitar work. I don't have a bass, but working through the concepts with a guitar is helpful. There was nothing stopping me from applying the same ideas on guitar, but it just never occurred to me. So I'm thinking differently on guitar and took the time to explore a concept Chris Buono mentioned - Improvisation by Permutation or something similar.
The six patterns for a 4 note arpeggio that always has root on the downbeat (so it's really root + 6 permutations possible with the remaining 3 notes) got me thinking that's where the '24 possible patterns' for 4 free notes (say a five-note arp = root + 4) come from. Then, being a tech geek, I wanted to understand how to predict them and think them through repeatedly and efficiently instead of fumbling around.
This gives me something to do with my left hand if I'm sitting around bored & waiting for something like a train crossing or someone to stop boring me in a meeting.
