Lesson 8 (Free)

What are these Pentatonic Pairs?! We've had some questions these past years-  Penta (5) in conjunction with pairs (2) doesn't really make much sense. We're sure the mathematical situation is likely more difficult to understand than the musical one. 'Pentatonic' primarily stands for a prominent sound. And when you start playing the  Pentatonic Pairs you’ll discover that the sound is fairly well represented by just these two pairs of notes in their special configuration. The benefit is that you will be producing a pentatonic sound with only needing and using  four notes.  This comes in handy to fit our rhythmic and metric structure which is predominantly partitioned in 2,4,8 and so forth. Learn now, starting with lesson 8, more about this Pentatonic Pair system and how these notes are applied, embellished and integrated to make beautiful music.

The power of the pentatonic scale will be revealed to you in all of Lesson 8. The concepts presented in these lessons are the basis for the special Jazz Everyone Language system. The Core Curriculum in the Player's Corner Lesson, "Basic Jazz Language 6-Pack", "Diminished 3-Pack" and "Half-Diminished 2-Pack" are introduced in Lessons 8-12 here in the Intermediate Corner.
