b minor Scale Exercise - All Instruments

Today's lesson is a great one for all instruments (including vocals). Well, we're pretty sure. But that also means melodic instruments. Drummers and percussionists you're just going to have to go back to yesterday's post and master that.

The lesson today is a b minor scale played in increments of scale steps. You'll notice the exercise ascends through the notes in pairs. The first note of each pair is the root note, obviously a B note because the scale is b minor. The increment style is like this 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, and so on.

Due to the great variety in how to actually play your instrument it's not possible to comment on fingering. What we can say is to work on hitting each note accurately and on beat. Avoid weak or dead notes. If you run into a weaker note work to trouble shoot it and get every note good and accurate.

Once you've got this concept you can transpose it to any key. You can also change the way you approach the notes. For example you could try 8, 7, 8, 6, 8, 5, etc. or 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, etc. So, that's it. Get challenging yourself and have fun.
