A real game changer

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.

Coltrane pent for guitar

I found the download process confusing. Wondering why not have it all together in one file rather than selecting rack one separately.

A convincing thesis

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!

A great tool

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.

Coltrane Pentatonic Guitar package

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.
