Chromatic Movement of Patterns

  • It is always safe to move a similar pattern chromatically to create an interesting effect in your solo lines.
  • This technique can be use in almost ANY chord changes, but there must be a point of resolution, usually a chord tone.

An example is seen here in bar 16 of the transcription

  • A series of augmented chords moving chromatically upwards.
  • Point of resolution is at the next bar, bar 17, with chord tones from a Cmaj9 chord.
