 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.

I love the conceptualization of how to make melodies

It's hard because I'm a slow sight reader but by slowing down, O;m learning and listening more. Just used to run scales and it became boring as soon as muscle memory became routinized.

Guitarist comment

Hey Nick, I can't tell you how much your lessons have inspired me, and how many interesting patterns have been added to my muscle memory. I've studied many sax solos, hoping to differentiate myself from other guitarists, which leads to my question: how do you account for competition when it comes to performing music? I've never thought that music should be competitive, but we all want to differentiate ourselves, right? Anyway, you are an amazing player, and a great marketer. I hope that you're an amazing businessman too. You deserve to profit from the valuable and entertaining content you provide. Thanks! Scott Pettersen PS: Are you a real person or AI?

Loving all the JazzDuets Exercises

For the price of a one hour music lesson I can purchase half a dozen of Nicks fun and informative exercises and keep myself busy for weeks.

Interesting exercise for guitarists

Really very useful exercise for training rhythm, very very interesting especially for a guitarist like me who wants to expand the sounds towards a jazz style. Thank you
