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.
