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 6thand the emotional 9th of the minor (unlike the traditional minor Pentatonic), making it perhaps more exotic and unusual.

The unexpected melodic shapes the Coltrane Pentatonic note yield provide a wealth of challenging material for the player who hungry for new sounds.

The most amazing thing about the John Coltrane pentatonic though is the number of chords over which it can be played! 

Learning how to superimpose this Pentatonic scale over multiple  chords will take your playing and improvisation to a higher level.

An Excellent Resource in Exploring New Sounds

This book and the included resources provide an excellent jumping off point for exploring an incredibly versatile pentatonic scale. I've incorporated these exercises into my regular practice, and have found them incredibly illuminating.

Not just for horns!

I love all the Jazz Duets content as a guitarist. Concepts like the this are particularly useful to us guitar players. I also love how Jazz duets is big on encouraging the reader to really use these exercises to create their own lines with their own unique musical voice. Bravo guys, keep up the great content!

Good organization of creative elements.

A clear analysis work for learning, purposeful to apply the same method to the study of other melodic themes. The marketing incentive is also motivating to access the product. Thank you for your work.

Un bon outil pour travailler

Une bonne méthode pédagogique, permettant de s'approprier cette gamme pentatonique à la sauce Coltrane. J'espère qu'il sera proposé un jour la même approche avec la Paul Desmond ;)
