Backward Chromatic Targeting (Part 2)

So now that we covered the targeting patterns, it is time to use them in context. This part of the ‘Backward Chromatic Targeting’ lesson will focus on musical examples. I provided audio examples so you can hear how it sound in context. I have also outlined all the targeting patterns to help you identify them. Try to identify the approach notes and the target note.

The first 4 examples are Am runs;

Ex.1 & 2






Now, 4 examples for Gmaj7;

Ex.5 & 6






The 3 next examples are for a II – V – I in G







In the next lesson we will take a look at some more complex lines built using this strategy. It will consist of chaining multiple targeting patterns to create some more chromatic lines…. anyway, have fun!
