Chromatics Day 1

  I always like to practice chromatic patterns. Not only are they a good way of maintaining your technique but it's also very useful to have a large repetoire of them when improvising.

As ever the golden rules are:

Practice these slowly and cleanly at first
Build up the speed gradually using a metronome for much of the time
If you can't sing these patterns as you play them then learn to

As usual I'm playing in P4 tuning in the video but for you unfortunate souls still in standard tuning I've tabbed it that way.
