Chromatic Bass Line – H

Chromatic Bass Line Composer: Gary Lloyd

I wrote this perhaps 10 years ago. The purpose was to illustrate what happens when we use a bass line that descends in half steps, which we define as a downward chromatic scale. This idea has been used by composer after composer for several centuries and is being used right now by current composers.

  1. I recorded it and saved it in dropbox today. Great training for me on relaxing the left hand after pushing the pedal and preparing for the next cord. Also, playing with the tempo and focusing on the most difficult sections. Loved it.
