    Eugene’s brain stimulant!

    This is outstanding! I play bass but would love to understand more chord change patterns for improv as well as playing a bass line! I have my work cut out for me! Thank you!

    Great tutorial

    It's an eye opener for me! I'm getting more used to and not afraid anymore of practicing odd time signatures! I love it!

    Thank you

    Hello! You made a very useful and friendly base. Thank you so much for that. I purchased pentatonic studies, but my teacher says it’s a bit early for me, and better to concentrate on more traditional scales for example as your studies with blues tones (-3 -7) actually it was what I was looking for, but couldn’t identify for myself among other studies in your base. However, everything is great and helpful. Thank you once again!

    Calm in a bebop storm

    I am just getting into the pentatonics shape materials. I put a soprano sax sound on my keyboard, load the mp3 and sink into an almost meditative state. The synth pad chords are beautiful and they encourage a slow, deliberate approach to the exercises. Each note against the different chords is a new reveal and draws you in. This is a great way to learn and embrace new vocabulary.

    I really enjoy how musical these exercises are, and I am definitely finding them to be very applicable in my improvisations.

    Pentatonic Expansion Shape 'Package'

    This lesson package is exceptional. the content is opening new horizons for us musicians.

    Very helpful

    I am a user of the Bergonzi pentatonics method, and find Nick's methods and approaches to be very complementary to the Bergonzi work. I love the wider interval sounds that Nick is fond of, and am trying to incorporate those sounds into my playing.

    Excelente y muy completo material.

    No esperaba menos. Muy completo para mejorar el vocabulario a veces aparcado de las pentatónicas. Muchas gracias por el trabajo al realizar también videos en español.

    So refreshing!!

    I did'nt think doing excercise would be this fun! It's great hearing the chord changes while going thru the scales and also to improvise over. Thank you Jazz Duets!!

    Now for the work to start :)

    Everything was easy enough to download... Gonna take a LOT to go through. And then of course daunting a little when you realise what you are looking at hehe :) but great. There ARE a few key signatures that are wrong here and there, but it doesn't take away from the exercises themselves

    A very comprehensive treatise on the topic "Pentatonic pattern in jazz". I think I would have to search for a long time to find a work that deals with the topic more completely.
