Chromatic Scale

There are 12 notes in our musical language and when played in order they make up a chromatic scale. It is important to learn the this scale when learning to play music, if not just to make sure you know all the notes on your instrument. It's pretty easy to understand, it's just every note. The important thing to notice is that there isn't a note between E and F or B and C. Being able to play a chromatic scale up and down quickly and smooth is very beneficial. Knowing this scale is also very important when learning the musical intervals.
