8.2 New Vocabulary – Pentatonic Power adding the 9th

Pentatonic Scales and the II-V Chord Progression

Adding the 9th scale step to the Minor Pentatonic scale creates traditional vocabulary for the minor II chord. It can be easily moved to the Major Pentatonic scale in the Dominant V chord with the added b7. Major and Minor Pentatonic scales with added notes provide the basis for most traditional jazz vocabulary.
