[Bar 31 (A7 shape #4)] Four episodes of chro­mati­cism in this ex­am­ple: in the ini­tial dou­ble-stop, a C nat­u­ral is used to bend up to a C#: along with the E note, this gives us the 3rd and 5th of the un­der­ly­ing A7 chord; in beat 2 of bar 31, an Eb note is used as a chro­matic bridge link­ing an E to a D. Beat 3 of the same bar starts off with a C nat­u­ral lead­ing to a C# (3rd of A7) and this chro­matic as­cent con­tin­ues up to the E nat­u­ral at the start of beat 4; hence the in­tro­duc­tion of the Eb note at the end of beat 3; and fi­nally, again, in beat 3 of bar 32 an Eb note is used as a chro­matic bridge link­ing an E to a D.
