I lovingly wrote these short studies over 6 months as a way to  demonstrate/ introduce 12  different harmonic possibilites/systems  available to the improvisor on a static minor 7th (dorian)  vamp as a way to bring out different sound emotions.

These specially crafted exercises ( this is version 16! ) that are packed with innovative lines  will challenge and inspire you whilst challenging your technique and developing your ear.

The download contains: PDF for C, Bb Eb and Bass Instruments + Mp3 of backing track + Explanatory PDf of each of the 12 scales/ideas used.

 Some of these examples  are new! ( Super Blues scale, Hybrid Blues Scale, Hendrix pentonic minor+ Others) and some better know : ( penatonic, bebop) 

Written solo examples of the following ideas are presented :

1) Bebop scale + approach notes -  a jazzy sound 

2) 2 Major pairs triads -  redolent of the Dorian 

3) Approaching Major Triads - chromatic coherent sound

4) 2 more triads  - Melodic  Minor Sound

5) Treating the chord as a Tonic Minor- classical type sound

6) The Minor Pentatonic - sturdy 'inside sound'

7) The Blues scale - blues sound

8) Hendrix Pentatonic - edgy variant on the pentatonic

9) Hybrid Blues scale - mixing major + minor 3rd in to the blues scale

10) Bebop Blues scalemore chromatic notes

11) The 'Super Blues scale'8 note blues scale

12) Approaching the Minor Pentatonic with chromatic approach notes
