In this video lesson we will take a look at Exercise #2 from my 10-part jazz improvisation book on basic chromatic embellishment. Take a look at last week's post to find out the contents of the .pdf lessons and how to download them.
This exercise takes us through descending chromatic embellishments of all Major/minor triads through all 12 keys. Remember to practice each exercise very slowly. It's more about hearing each pitch accurately than playing through the exercises quickly. Speed will come with time (and with context!).
A preview of the the 10-part .pdf download can be viewed here: Chord Tone Improvisation Part 1: Chromatic Embelishments (via Scribd.com). A download is available be clicking the "Add to Cart" button under the top right hand sidebar.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions about the exercises.
