John Coltrane Pentatonic- exercises/theory digital download.
In this resource we take 5 notes John Coltrane played on his stunningly lyrical solo on 'Wise One ' from his Classic 'Crescent' album and use them to construct an abundance of fresh, inspiring challenging practice material.
This 'new' 5 note Pentatonic is unique as it features the optimistic Natural 6th and the emotional 9th of the minor (unlike the traditional minor Pentatonic), making it perhaps more exotic and unusual.
The unexpected melodic shapes the Coltrane Pentatonic note yield provide a wealth of challenging material for the player who hungry for new sounds.
The most amazing thing about the John Coltrane pentatonic though is the number of chords over which it can be played!

Uneasy for me, but i ll try. Vey interesting anyway...
Great material. Thank you so much.
Great material! Comprehensive studies, very inspiring and opens your imagination. Makes it easy to conceptualize Trane's pentatonic approach. Even though these are essentially etudes, they're musical and practically jam sesh-ready right off the bat. If you're looking to expand your ideas to include a more modern/more Trane/less bebop-ish sound, this is a FANTASTIC place to start.
I already started working today slowly and I’m going to work over the long term to integrate voicings into my musical vocabulary. Thank you so much.
