Chromatic Scales

Chromatic Dominant Scale drills



These studies should persuade you that the chromatic dominant ('ChromDom') scale is a real part of the popular music sound, and give you a good incentive to perfect your performance.

There's no hands-on demo - you can see immediately what's needed.

First ChromDom study: I7/II7/V7


Transpose this into other I7/II7/V7 groups of chords:

  • D7 (I7) / E7 (II7) / A7 (V7)
  • G7 (I7) / A7 (II7) / D7 (V7)
  • A7 (I7) / B7 (II7) / E7 (V7

Second ChromDom study: I7/IV7/V7

The second study - using C7, F7 and G7 - is more true to its 12-bar I-IV-V roots.


Transpose into other I7/IV7/V7 groups of chords:

  • D7 (I7) / G7 (IV7) / A7 (V7)
  • A7 (I7) / D7 (IV7) / E7 (V7)
  • E7 (I7) / A7 (IV7) / B7 (V7

Speed versions: I7/II7/V7

Ready for the speed-dating version?

Here's the I7/II7/V7 (C7, D7, G7) version without the internal repeats.


Play this study in:

  • D7 (I7) / E7 (II7) / A7 (V7)
  • G7 (I7) / A7 (II7) / D7 (V7)
  • A7 (I7) / B7 (II7) / E7 (V7

Speed versions: I7/IV7/V7

Here's the I7/IV7/V7 (C7, F7, G7) version without the internal repeats.


Play this study in:

  • D7 (I7) / G7 (IV7) / A7 (V7)
  • A7 (I7) / D7 (IV7) / E7 (V7)
