    I just thought I'd post this to show an different way to move around the 12 keys. It's a little weird perhaps and you do need a wee bit of music theory to easily understand it, but once understood, a lot of fun.

    One of the big problems to learning scales and chords on EB is the ease of falling into patterns. They get the job done, but at the expensive of understanding the instrument fully. Hopefully this kind of approach breaks the patterns and gets you in touch with keys, modulations, and different ways to construct music.

    Emile DeCosmo has a good approach, he calls Polytonal Order of Keys. I've only recently got to it, but started implementing it in my practice immediately. So far, pretty happy with the results.
