Creative exercises for Chromatically approaching Pentatonic scales

I played saxophones for almost 40 years and the level of pentatonics usage(patterns) that I have in my vocabulary is considered very high..your ideas that create more spice to it is awesome,never thought that it brought my pentatonics patterns that I already have to another incredibly exciting phase...something to keep me occupied and building a strong determination to go further...thank you Sir!!!...

Chromatic approaches to pentatonic scales

Great ideas. Well presented and explained. A great package and value for money. Probably too cheap for such great content.

I wish I would have discovered this DECADES ago!

Like most guitarists, I got stuck in the "pentatonic box" for decades. If someone would have shown me this material I could have made REALLY rapid progress simply by building on what I already knew. After buying this I was playing harmonically interesting lines within MINUTES that didn't even sound like pentatonics! Nick Homes is not only a master musician, he's a master TEACHER. After 3 decades of study and practice, I've never made this much progress this fast . If I would have had access to this material decades ago, who knows where I'd be right now. But better late than never. I sure am glad I have it now. Thanks a million, Nick!

Ok, but definitely buy again :)

I expected more content beside what I already saw on yt. For inexperienced students lines still need to be analyzed note by note, but the ideas are all there. Will buy more stuff. Probably pentatonic variations. I loved Jerry Bergonzi’s book on pentatonics, btw. I wonder what you did on yours. Congratulations, great yt channel! And great playing! Cheers, Gasper
