I've been improvising with the pentatonic minor/major scale for a good year and a half now, and I want to start incorporating chromatic scales/runs into my playing. I don't want to be a buzzboy/shredder, or whatever they are called these days, so I'm not too concerened with speed. Chromatic excercises...the whole 1-2-3-4 deal... I don't see it helping me in putting chromatic notes while improvising. Are there any excercises/things I need to know about chromatic scales? When I play notes outside of the major/minor scale, it doesnt sound "right" if you guys know what I mean. any help would be greatly appreciated. I just want you guys to know how much I learned just by reading and following along with things on this forum, keep up the good work.
