Creating Modern Lines with Altered Pentatonic Variations-Lesson 1



In this lesson, we are taking a more in-depth look at the use of altered pentatonic variations to play cool “outside”lines over a minor key center.   This lesson is based off of the pentatonic line #20 in my book “Mastering Altered Pentatonics”. You will need that book to get the most out of this lesson.

In this lesson, I have created a system that I used to mix up the 12 pentatonic altered scales in my book to create these 24 great sounding modern lines.  I teach you how I came up with this system and how I used it to create these fresh lines based off of the 12 pentatonic scales in my book. 

This is a great lesson if you struggle with adding variety and “outside” lines to your favorite minor grooves.  Mastering these altered pentatonics will give you access to a range of sounds that will make other musicians ask what you were playing and thinking on your last solo……..I demonstrate all the lines to a funky D minor play along (C minor concert) and demonstrate all the lines on the soprano saxophone.
