Pat Martino 12 Chromatic Forms for Guitar

These are 12 forms for a chromatic scale with octave displacements as taught by Pat Martino when he was at GIT in the 70's. As far as I know it has not appeared in any book since then and was simply handed out to students. It is reproduced here from a photo copy with the original copyright. Each line is a form, and ends on the next note up or down from the starting point so that it can repeat one step up or down.

The arrow at the begining of each line says whether it's an ascending or descending chromatic scale. It is recomended to sing the undisplaced chromatic scale as you play it. Expect to spend a long time with each line...
