The Pentatonic Index (Video Course)


The Pentatonic Index provides clear explanations and applications of the 3 most common ‘Families’ of Pentatonics: The Major/Minor Family (∆6/-7), The Dominant 7/Minor 6 Family (7/-6)and the less commonly used Major b6/Altered Dominant/Major 7#5 Family (∆b6/7alt./∆7#5). If those chords look foreign or confusing to you, this is probably the course for you! Not only is it a clear theoretical insight on what Pentatonic Scales work to perfectly highlight these chords in a modal setting, this course is also a collection of ii V I pentatonic lines that work over the 4 most common ii V I chord progressions you will see in tonal harmony.





Along with the modes previously mentioned, the following ii V i progressions and pentatonic lines are provided with demonstration in this course:

-Scales and Explorations of the ∆6, -7, 7, -6, ∆b6, Alt.7 ∆7#5 Chord Qualities

-No Alteration, Tritone Sub, Parallel Motion and Modal Shifting ii V I Chord Progressions

-Scalar and Pattern Based Pentatonic ii V Is

-Intervallic Pentatonic ii V Is

-Rhythmic Pentatonic ii V Is

-Stacked Interval Voicing Pentatonic ii V Is

-Downloads of ii V I tracks and a PDF written out in ALL 12 KEYS of All Lines for Independent Gradual Study

While the Major 6 (∆6) and Minor 7 (-7) applications of the pentatonic scale are quite common, I often find improvisers not knowing how to use this information in a tonal ii V I setting to their advantage. Because the pentatonic scale is SO versatile, learning different modes and alterations of it can really help to give you a tool kit of scales and sounds that you can draw from to improvise in a truly personal way. The skillsets offered here are ones that I hear regularly incorporated by modern masters of improvisation.

With slow and fast backing and practice tracks for over 100 playing examples as well as video explanations for each piece type of pentatonic and its application you are sure to glean many new insights on how to approach improvising in all situations after completing this course 🎶💡🚀
