More Harmonised Scales
Once you feel comfortable with the harmonised major and minor scales, you might like to try these other scales.
Again, Michael has created each one individually with its own harmonisation. He's also included 'Broken Chords' and Arpeggios at the end for when you want a bit more of a challenge.
Again, there are no hard and fast rules about how to use them. Try using vowel sounds on their own or single syllables like lah, loo, maw, me, ( pew is always useful!).
Breathe comfortably to begin with - and take a breath wherever you have to. You'll find you can take fewer breaths as your control increases, until as with the other scales, you can do the whole exercise in one breath.
Practice singing them smoothly (legato) or make each note detached (staccato). Have fun making up your own exercises.
