Our next development of the dexterity exercise entails the full chromatic scale. The full chromatic scale is most simply put: a 12-tone scale utilizing all tones used in western harmony. You might recognize this scale used in fusion rock styles or as a compositional tool, but for our purpose it will be used to practice alternate picking and left hand shifting. As it utilizes considerably more shifting on the part of the left hand, there are a couple variations on this scale each with their own fingering difficulties. This exercise puts a great deal of focus on shifting the left hand and will help your navigation across the neck.
