CHROMATIC FANATIC! A fun new method for perfecting the chromatic scale, arranged & devised by internationally acclaimed clarinet & saxophone artist Andy Firth.
The Chromatic Scale is one of the most important of all scales for a musician to master. The chromatic scale is used in all styles of music and is an essential part of any good musician’s skill set. As a general rule, the chromatic scale is used as a highway between two distantly spaced notes and so it is for this reason that musician’s need to be able to play it at a very rapid pace. Chromatic scales can be used over short distances of only a few intervals or they can span over many octaves. It is essential for a good musician to practice and master the chromatic scale from the lowest to the highest note on their instruments. This of course includes vocalists as well as instrumentalists.
This piece is much more than just a set of exercises based upon the chromatic scale. It is in fact a carefully thought out method that enables musicians to work through the piece at any level they desire. The backing tracks are all contemporary grooves that have been composed to inspire, entertain and compliment each level of the piece.
The piece does not need to be performed as a whole work, but rather can be stopped at any point until the performer has mastered the next level of the piece.
The piece begins at a very basic beginner level and slowly changes in rhythm and pace until the “professional” level is reached at the end of the work. There is no hurry to master the entire piece as it has been designed to slowly train and workshop the finger muscles in readiness for the next level of the piece.
CHROMATIC FANATIC! comes complete with:
The music with instructions on how to get the most from the work for your chosen instrument (Clarinet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax or Flute-all sold separately)
Performance and backing tracks, in fact everything you need to start your journey. So all you need to do is provide the talent and energy to learn and perform the work.
All backings were arranged & performed by Andy Firth.
