Lesson: E Chromatic Scale in Octaves

E Chromatic Scale in Octaves – Practice in both solid form and broken. Use any logical right hand fingering such as p-i the entire time or alternating p-i-p-m. There are an endless number of exercises for finger independence and stretching but playing scales in various intervals provides an excellent workout and adds musical context and variety. YouTube Lesson Link.
