In this new lesson entitled “Creating Modern II-V-I Lines with Simple Pentatonics Lesson”, I teach you a simple approach to using two minor pentatonic scales to produce very hip and modern sounding lines over a ii-7 V7 IMaj7 progression. This progression is one of the most common chord progressions in jazz and applying these cool pentatonic scales to the progression is a simple way of coming up with new melodic and harmonic material.
In this 52 minute lesson video, I play the soprano saxophone as I demonstrate how to conceptualize this concept as well as how to best practice the material for optimal results. I demonstrate all of the lines in the PDF that is included with the lesson to a play along so you can hear how the lines sound with the chords. I also show you many ways to improvise with the material by using creative ideas using rhythmic and line displacements.
This is a simple but revolutionary concept that once mastered can really give you a ton of new and modern intervallic ideas and lines to use over jazz standards.
