John Coltrane Pentatonic- exercises/theory digital download.


Prepare to explore a realm of fresh, inspiring, and challenging practice material that will leave you endlessly motivated.

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.

Unlike the conventional minor Pentatonic, this 'new' 5-note Coltrane Pentatonic scale features the uplifting Natural 6th and the emotional 9th, imparting a rare exotic touch to the scale.


 The unusual musical shapes that the "Coltrane Pentatonic" produce  provide a wealth of challenging material for the player looking for new sophisticated sounds and unexpected melodic suprises with which to add to their  improvisational tool box.


One of the most astonishing attributes of the John Coltrane pentatonic is its remarkable compatibility with various chords. Unlock the potential of this scale by learning how to seamlessly superimpose it over multiple chord progressions. This achievement will propel your harmonic and improvisational abilities to soaring heights.

If you desire an immersive musical experience that will keep you joyfully engrossed for months, while simultaneously refining your technique and broadening your improvisational horizons, look no further.

Embrace the "Coltrane Pentatonic" and embark on an extraordinary journey of musical growth and expression.
