The Twelve-Tone System
Any notes of the chromatic scale can be arranged to form any type of structure. This is useful for improvisation and to develop technical control. In this lesson, in bars 1-3, we begin on "C" and then arrange the remaining eleven chromatic notes in the order given in the sequence shown below(with no repeats). In bars 5-7, the notes are lowered a semi-tone starting with "B", but the structure and shape are maintained of bars 1-3. You can see the structure in notation. Experiment with different structures. It may also be possible to develop your own motifs using it as a chromatic approach rather than an otherwise diatonic approach to doing so.
