Standards: Lesson 6

Lesson 6 – Using the Altered Pentatonic Scale, augmentation and learning a Standard

The Altered Pentatonic should not be confused with the Gin and Tonic  Scale – a far more interesting and penetrating enquiry into the relationship between a drink and its chaser. In fact Thelonious Monk may have been inspired to compose his “Straight, No Chaser” after discovering this very scale. (Seriously, SNC does use the Altered Pentatonic and is a perfect example of displacement)

And augmentation doesn’t mean you fill up with pasta before playing!
