Lesson 10: Whole Tone Melody

The whole tone scale can be a bit too transparent to use frequently during improvisation.  I’ve found that by conceiving of it both in augmented triads and with chromatic passing tones it becomes a little less obviously “whole tone”.  This simple melody ascends using augmented triads grouped in threes and descends using chromatic passing tones.   The exercise starts on concert C7 and continues around the circle of fourths through the keys.
