Lesson 13: Minor Pentatonics, Altered Chords, and the ii-V-I
The minor pentatonic scale can also be used in chord progressions as well as static chords to create unique sounding ideas. One of my favorite examples is the use of the minor pentatonic scale to improvise over major ii-V-I progressions.
We have already covered individual uses for both minor 7 and major 7 chords, and by now you should be getting comfortable with both the sound and feel of these substitutions. Now we can add to our collection an idea that is compatible with dominant 7 chords, and this will allow us to connect a series of 3 pentatonic ideas that will correspond to each chord in our ii-V-I progressions.
