Jordu: Bridge Chord Changes

The bridge section of the song Jordu poses some challenges for the intrepid improvisor. The challenge comes form the rapid-fire (especially depending on tempo) pace of the chord changes. In this case beyond just the chord changes, you are dealing with rapid-fire key changes.

To begin with let's get the sound of the chords by outlining the arpeggios of the chords in the bridge. Here is the bridge with connected arpeggios following an up-down pattern. (It is written for our instrumentation with all parts transposed.) You may notice I have taken some enharmonic liberties to avoid double sharps and the like.
