Okay, here's where
it all comes together.
We're going to play this.
I know you play this, if you haven't you
probably should take a look at the basic
version of my performance of this track
using the pentatonic and blue scale.
And also the intermediate version,
what I try to do in the basic version is
to keep it, you guessed it, very basic.
Where my ideas were simple,
they were really to the point and
just not too many notes.
You don't, hey you can play
a very great advanced solo and
still not use many notes.
Playing advanced doesn't mean that you're
playing, notes for days and days and days.
But I wanted to make sure that I
did stick to the arpeggios and
make it very super clear.
On the intermediate version,
I expanded somewhat and
used more of the entire scales.
Both pentatonic and blues scales.
And experimented more with doubling
up a few things time wise and,
just doing some different things.
So now it's time to cut loose and so very
often, a scale is sort of a reference.
Don't forget that,
don't ever think that a teacher will say,
okay, over this chord you use this scale.
It doesn't mean you use this scale and
It means that that's one of
the foundations that you can use.
But man, when you listen to some
of your favorite improvisers.
When I listen to Michael Brecker or
John Coltrane or Charlie Parker or
Yeah, they're using chord scales,
but boy obviously great improvisers
of all time are doing things far
beyond just the scales obviously.
So things like chromaticism and doing
different kinds of things rhythmically or
all kinds of different things.
All things that we're working
on here at this school.
But feel free to blend it all in,
but remember what's home.
Remember that our root is the,
our root purpose is for this lesson and
to be thinking in terms of one, or
actually in this case two scales that you
can use over these chords, is your minor
pentatonics and your Blues scales.
So go for it, cut loose, and have fun.
