Chromatic Acrobatics (Practicing Technique? Learn a cool groove!)

If you are looking to create your own chromatic grooves, knowing your chord tones is a great start and then approaching those chord tones chromatically creates the cool groove. You can use one, two or three notes to approach the target notes.

To get super fit with this, check out my new book – The Pattern System for the Bass Player – Sharpen Your Musical Mind Through Fretboard Proficiency, Improvisation and Mental Practice – You can now pre-order it and get awesome specials and combo deals as part of the presale campaign!

    Hey Ari, looks like I literally JUST missed your backer campaign. I would be in for a combo pack of book and charts if you have any remaining. I loved your first book and the spiral binding it a great idea…

      Hi Derek, thanks for your interest! I really think you will love this program! To order you can just paypal the combo pack plus shipping to my gmail address and it will go out shortly!
      Spiral binding is much better for sure, this one has 330 pages. With the first book, if you have it perfect bound, you can go to a print shop and ask them to cut off the spine and put spiral binding in. That typically costs around $10 and we made the layout so it works out well.
