Yup. Solid method that seems to work in many forms. This is a great way of familiarizing oneself with the sound of the tune. The arpeggios clearly illustrate the changes. Other similar methods are 1-2-3-5 on each chord. Obviously these don't make super compelling solos on their own, but definitely a great foundation for the ears and technique.

I should have clarified, we were using it while he was improvising, as a way for him to visualize each chord and give his lines connection and direction. I didn't mean for them to be playing "literally" I suppose.

Interesting, and cool to know that it worked for this student. The fact that it helped someone reach a new level in their playing says it all.

I thought so too. I'm sure someone has used an approach like this. I kind of like that it seems to give a bit of motion to soloing. (The up/down movement)
