3. SUPERIMPOSING LYDIAN PENTATONIC SHAPES ON MAJOR7TH CHORDS - DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

 The bright, uplifting, ethereal sound of superimposing the Minor pentatonic on the Major 7th chord is a wonder addition to any improvisors toolbox of sounds. 

As Charlie Parker said:

"I realized by using the high notes of the chords as a melodic line, and by the right harmonic progression, I could play what I heard inside me."

When we superimpose the Minor Pentatonic on to the 7th degree of the major 7th chord we highlight the major 7th, 9th, the 3rd, #11 and 13th (or 6th) - the higher extensions of the chords.

 Understanding + adding these uplifting ethereal sounds to our repertoire will help us to take our playing higher levels.

 The download includes the following:

  • Mp3 of all the video examples 
  • Regular and Slower backing  Mp3 play along tracks
  • PDF of all video exercises that demonstrate superimposing the pentatonic starting on the Minor 3rd and Major 7th of the Major 7th chord for Concert, Bb, Eb and Bass instruments + GTR TAB
  • A theory Pdf that contains examples of the superimposition in various keys.

 

4. HENDRIX PENTATONIC  EXERCISES - PDF DOWNLOAD

 

The innovative Hendrix Pentatonic combines the Major and Minor 3rd producing a compelling dichotomy of sound that is angular and unusual rarely seen in traditional resource books.

Arguably the Major and Minor 3rd is the musical Ying Yang of Jazz and Blues.

The specially written exercises in this PDF challenge the ear and fingers with wide, spacious patterns  designed to familiarize the player to this edgy scale whilst at the same time  opening up a myriad of new possibilities to the improvisor.

The  35 page PDF is suitable for most Treble instruments: Flutes, Saxes, Trumpet, Piano, Guitar, Clarinet etc- as the range of each exercise has been very carefully considered.
