LRT-010 Sixteenth Note Run

Enjoy this fast and fun sixteenth note run written and recorded by Charles Gervase.  If you look closely at this lick, it does not fit the mold of a common scale.  The first measure uses four sharps, such as in the key of E, but it also uses F and G to form chromatic lines.  The second measure shifts the same pattern up a perfect fourth.  The cool thing about this lick is the 6-note chromatic run in the middle of each measure.  I had fun with this one, and I hope you do too!
