Talking Technique: Chromatic Acrobatics #3

In this episode, we’re going to cover another chromatic workout. These chromatic lines are really fun to play, and they’re also a great technique workout for both our right and left hands. Not only that, they’re basically the musical application of permutation exercises.

You can download the tracks for this exercise from my website, and follow along with this lesson’s transcription and the video below.
