I love it and once I found out what the scale was I have been practicing in all keys and all pertinent chord types. Thank you
Awesome I got the non-Guitar one first because I didn’t know there was a Guitar one and everything was going great and to make it a little easier I got the guitar one as well awesome stuff thank you
Love the simplicity of the course and I love the sonic results. sounds amazing that’s all that matters. Generates such cool sound textures. Less is more. I hope people will understand how brilliant this course is.
I found the download process confusing. Wondering why not have it all together in one file rather than selecting rack one separately.
I would definitely buy from you again. Thanx again! All the best from Italy Daniele
I’m not sure if John Coltrane ever actually thought of these notes in this way, but it’s quite possible and it really doesn’t matter. I already know literally dozens of scales but these patterns broke me out of a long doldrums, and the accompanying support materials makes time spent practicing them fly by. They get into your ears and under your fingers quickly, and start coming out in your improvisations right away. I’m an educator myself, and I give this effort an A. I’m working with the digital downloads so far and my single constructive criticism, for the A+, is to label the videos completely and cross reference page/exercise numbers. The PDF could even be interactive, so if you keep it with the audio and video supplements the right one opens with a click. But I’ll be on page 56 long before you get any of that done! Cheers!
Don’t let these five simple notes fool you: there is a lot to discover for intermediate and advance players. The pentatonic structure gives it a singular color, different than the melodic minor scale. It is not only about how to deal with the major sixth. The guitar bundle includes about 10-11 lines (in all keys) to get familiar with the sound of this scale and tablatures to implement it on the fretboard, and a few Coltrane examples. I’m only scratching the surface here, I bet there is a lot to discover by yourself (for example the Am Coltrane P. over a C chord will give it a Lydian b5 color, and so one...) This lesson is aimed at guitarists but with a saxophonist phrasing approach: it is nice to be out of one’s comfort zone.
Hi Nick, Thank you for providing the guitar version of Coltane Pentatonic. There is so much to study and benefit from; challenging and fun.
I'm happy to having found Jazzduets. Great resource!
I've been having a great time playing with the material included in this package. There's a lot of good stuff here. It'll take a while to go through it all. Highly recommended
Straightforward. It had all the info I needed to start using the knowledge in my playing.
I loved this. It made it much easier to access the spaces where I should play or rest. It gave me a much better understanding of the notes and patterns used in Coltrane’s pieces.
The thinking of John Coltrane when improvising is an important experience for Jazz Musicans...a must have to anyone.
By far my favorite out of all of these! Extremely useful and sound so awesome
terrific - highly reccomended
As a relative Jazz guitar beginner, the scale exercise picked me up where I was and helped me improving quite nicely!
