Playing Outside-Outside 4 Note Pentatonic Cells is another lesson on modern jazz improvisation. In this lesson we take a look at “playing outside” the tonality of a tune by shifting out of a minor 6th pentatonic using specific 4 note cells derived from a pentatonic scale in another key.
In this 34 minute video lesson, I show you how to shift outside of a key momentarily using 4 note cells chosen from other pentatonic scales. This concept gives the soloist a sound that quickly shifts in and out of the key being played in. I demonstrate the technique on the soprano saxophone with a play along track. I have also included a PDF sheet of some minor 6th pentatonic lines as well as a PDF of 7 cells that sound amazing when inserted into these minor 6th lines.
This lesson goes hand in hand with my lesson “Modern Minor 6th Pentatonic Lines” and is a great lesson for those of you who want to grow in your ability to play “outside” fresh lines that sound modern and impressive.(34 minute video, 2 PDF sheets)
