This time we have the C minor scale in a pedal point sequence. Again, we play the scale straight up and down and in between each note we will repeat the lower root note. Like the C major scale pedal point exercise this is a great way to practice the scale because it a great interval recognition exercise. You can get really good at indentifying the sound (by "ear") of all the minor scale intervals.

When we get to the high C we do the entire thing in reverse. Do we repeat? Of course we do! How much? A lot. A whole lot.

And then some more.
