Some Campanella Runs to Practice

This piece, which doesn’t have a name yet and probably never will, is a study in mixing straightforward fingerpicking patterns based on chords with Campanella runs. The central chord is a C5 and the second ukulele plays a C minor. I had a little trouble deciding what key it was in but thanks to Guitar Pro I was able to see that the least number of accidentals was B flat so that’s the key I’ve given it.  As it’s based on the second note of the B flat scale, that makes it C Dorian, but that’s neither here nor there. I’ll wait and see if anybody is interested in learning it before posting tabs, so in the meantime here are two of the campanella runs to practice. They are quite similar in sound and structure.
