Pentatonics Workbook
Major Chromatic Passing Tones
(PD 03-03-16)

A study for the major pentatonic scale with both chromatic passing tones (CPTs) in C, D and E majors.

Here are the three sections of the music – the riff in C, D and E.

On the way up, you use í2; on the way down, you use both ë6 and í2.

In C:

The right hand runs up to RH3 on D sharp, then puts the thumb under.

The left hand is a broken sixth chord: Root, third, fifth, sixth.

In D:

In E:

Use the same fingering in D and E – run up to RH4 before putting the thumb under. (You have to, because the third is a black key in both cases.)

You can let some anticipation creep into the left hand as well – as in the video.
