3. SUPERIMPOSING LYDIAN PENTATONIC SHAPES ON MAJOR7TH CHORDS - DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
The bright, uplifting, ethereal sound of superimposing the Minor pentatonic on the Major 7th chord is a wonder addition to any improvisors toolbox of sounds.
As Charlie Parker said:
"I realized by using the high notes of the chords as a melodic line, and by the right harmonic progression, I could play what I heard inside me."
When we superimpose the Minor Pentatonic on to the 7th degree of the major 7th chord we highlight the major 7th, 9th, the 3rd, #11 and 13th (or 6th) - the higher extensions of the chords.
Understanding + adding these uplifting ethereal sounds to our repertoire will help us to take our playing higher levels.
The download includes the following:
4. 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.
Thank you for submitting a review!
Your input is very much appreciated. Share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too!
I especially liked the Giant Steps lecture. The tune is simlified a lot, with good backing tracks and many interesting ideas for improvision. Very refreshing
I like the material, but the download was very confusing. Maybe the titles could be more descriptive, what do I need to download to use for piano practice? But anyway, I downloaded everything.
I'm very glad I got the "bundle". This can be a lifetime of practice regimen for those who would like to master pentatonic skills. Everything makes good sense... and above all FUN!!!
Dear Nick, it was very smooth to use the exercises from the download into my music. I worked into the material for a few days and found many improvement. It's so creative and I find myself more ready for improvisation. Thanks!!
