Chromatic Scale

A chromatic scale includes all 12 notes in a standard octave. This may seem confusing at first because the definition of an octave is an 8-note scale where the 1st note and the 8th note are the same pitch. For example, in a standard “C” scale, the 1st note and the 8th note of that scale would both be “C”. However, a chromatic scale includes every half-note step in between the two “C’s”. A “#” symbol means sharp and a “b” symbol means flat or ½ step above or below the whole tone respectively, so the chromatic scale from “C” to “C” is:




C

C#/Db

D

D#/Eb

E

F

F#/Gb

G

G#/Ab

A

A#/Bb

B

C

A half-step above E is F and a half-step above B is C, so there is no E#/Fb or a B#/Cb. Below the notes of the fretboard are diagramed. Notice that by the time you get to the 5th fret of each string, you are overlapping the notes of the next string.
