I get confused easy and need a very
simple, and clear way of looking at things or I will quit. So
don't get overwhelmed with these scales. They are here for you
when you are ready for them. They are not mandatory, however
very useful, and they are part of the Jazz vocabulary.
The application of these scales is what is important.
Some of these scales can be
played on their own Native Root, or they can become many other
things, even "Altered
Scales" depending on what you call the Root. So to be sure, they
are worth learning. I will put together some applications that
you can explore. These indeed are very Cool.
Sorry this page is Under Construction. Coming Soon.
The Melodic Minor Scale
The Harmonic Minor Scale
The Japanese Pentatonic Scale
The Arabic Scale
The minor mode scales are
fairly new to Modern Jazz. A lot of earlier Jazz musicians did
not even have these in there quiver. Some of these scales are
kind of weird and not very usable, but a few are incredible.
This is for the Jazz Nazi who is an aficionado of the COOL to be
for sure. Have fun with these as you are now in the top 5
percent. You are entering into the New
Jazz Paradigm. TM.
