IMP163: Min7 Pentatonic Substitutions - Part 1
A lesson demonstrating how pentatonic scales can be used as substitution ideas when improvising over minor and minor 7 chords. Using the minor scale pentatonic scale from the 2nd and 5th scale degrees over a minor 7 chord gives you interesting colors that help to move your phrasing away from purely modal and scalar sounds. This is an easy-to-execute concept that takes a familiar shape and allows you to create more angular and sophisticated lines when improvising. Recommended for intermediate to advanced level players looking to expand their improvisational vocabulary over static chords and progressions incorporating minor chords.
