(midi)
(TAB)

If this is done, then go to the 3rd string, etc. - and up to the 6th string.

In both of these exercises we use only 3 fingers of our left hand, but this is the exercise for the 4th finger: play the chromatic scale without your right hand.

Lesson 3.

(TAB)

This chromatic scale can be start playing from any fret. It is important that you follow the main principle of this box construction.

Simultaneous warming-up for both hands:

Here I would like to play the chromatic scale with a mediator going up and down every stroke. This teaches you how to play clean.

This exercise should be played up to the 15th fret. So it covers almost all the fingerboard.

Recommendations:

- Do not forget that you start from low tempo, slowly increasing it as you playing skills develop.
