In this lesson I introduce you to 8 diatonic patterns that all improvisers should know. These are patterns that all use a half step chromatic approach before each diatonic triad. I have included a few commons and 4 that are not so common that sound great!
I show you how to practice these and then use them in your improvisation. Having a solid foundation of diatonic patterns is a great start to developing melodic material that you can use as you improvise.
Included in this lesson is a pdf sheet of the 8 patterns in the key of C,D and A. If you have never worked on diatonic patterns in all keys then this is a great lesson to get. Enjoy! (Video & PDF 29 minutes)
