I´d like to take some time to respond a question that reached me about how to practise minor 7 pentatonic scales. For the guys who don´t know what a minor 7 pentatonic is:
Let´s talk about a minor 7 pentatonic in A minor. The following numbers show the relation of the particular notes to the root A of the Aminor 7 pentatonic scale.
1 – b3 – 4 – 5 – b7
As you can see, the notes of the minor 7 pentatonic are pretty the same as the notes of the corresponding chord A minor 7 ( 1 – b3 – 5 – b7). Only the perfect fourth isn´t in the scale.
The following exercise applies an underlying harmony of minor 7 th chords that move up chromatically. To practise the notes of the scale in a workout, play the pentatonics moving up as notated in the downloadable PDF.
Please comment or mail for further questions or a lesson about this stuff.
