Sheet music and mp3s for exercises can be accessed here! These are samples, which are free to download. My goal is to post the sheet music, mp3 backup tracks at several speeds (for your practicing enjoyment), and mp3 examples of me playing the exercise on the fiddle. Eventually the full collection will be available at my Store (which is still under construction). These aren't easy - beginner exercises will be created and loaded as my students need them.
Major Pentatonic Scales
Here are the Major Pentatonic Scales in 12 keys. It's nice to practice these with a backup or drone to keep your pitch in line. I'll get that posted soon.
Here are two seventh chord patterns that are great as warm-ups. These move diatonically, starting on each step of the major scale. Although you can move through all 12 keys in any order, I've put them around the circle of 5ths for this drill. The first exercise (Diatonic Sevenths Ex 1) is in cut time, so play it along with the backup mp3 called "Major Diatonic around circle cut time." The second exercise (Diatonic Sevenths Ex 2) works with the backup mp3 called "Major Diatonic around circle common time."
