  • The chromatic scale is a 12 note scale consisting entirely of half-step intervals. It contains all the notes you can find on the guitar neck.

    Most guitar players use some chromatic exercises as a warmup or a technique building tool at some point, but don't really know how to apply the chromatic scale to a musical idea.

    In this lesson we're combining the chromatic scale with E minor pentatonic, E dorian and E blues scale. We're just adding some chromatic passing notes to give the licks a little bit different flavor.
