[MUSIC]
Okay, now I'm gonna play for
you Summertime by George Gershwin,
starting at the eighth hole blow.
This is what the melody sounds like.
[MUSIC]
The minor
pentatonic scale
it's kinda
bluesy and
when you learn
how to bend,
it'll be much
bluesier.
It has a few chords in it.
[MUSIC]
They get a little
more complicated than
just the standard blues.
I'm making them simple.
[LAUGH]
[MUSIC]
And then it goes to C for a second,
which is called the relative
major of A minor.
A little bit of music theory, here.
[MUSIC]
So if I were to
play it together.
[MUSIC]
You
can hear,
it's just
getting
a little
bit jazzy.
