Hendrix Pentatonic Exercises- PDF download
The innovative Hendrix Pentatonic combines the Major and Minor 3rd producing a compelling dichotomy of sound that is angular and unusual rarely seen in traditional resource books.
Arguably the Major and Minor 3rd is the musical Ying Yang of Jazz and Blues.
The specially written exercises in this PDF challenge the ear and fingers with wide, spacious patterns designed to familiarize the player to this edgy scale whilst at the same time opening up a myriad of new possibilities to the improvisor.
The 35 page PDF is suitable for most Treble instruments: Flutes, Saxes, Trumpet, Piano, Guitar, Clarinet etc- as the range of each exercise has been very carefully considered.

Jazz improvisation study material of this calibre is hard to come by. It’s a guiding light through the often difficult pathways to understanding the principles of Jazz.
