Example #5.

Finally, we have example #5, which is a simple chromatic idea, moving you from the 5th position down to the 4th. Chromatics is another great way of tying together your outside playing, and making it more interesting. However, as stated earlier, how you play these ideas rhythmically is extremely important. As long as you convincingly play them with good timing and phrasing, you can get away with some really far out playing (just ask guys like Coltrane, Stern and Scofield).

Once you feel that you have mastered all of these ideas, and made an effort to apply the concept on your own playing, you are ready to take on the final challenge. The improvisation! Turn the page!
