 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 6th and 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!

Coltrane's Pentatonic Patterns

Very Good. Took a quick look at them. Working on other material. I was happy to see you had these. I've been studying McCoy Tyner quite a bit since his passing. Thank you Nick.
