Superimposing Lydian Pentatonic shapes on Major7th chords - digital download

Note. If you wish to purchase this with a credit card please proceed to JazzDuets parallel site herehttps://gum.co/iqlvf

 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 forConcert, Bb, Eb and Bass instruments + GTR TAB
  • A theory Pdf that contains examples of the superimposition in various keys.
