Matt Otto In lesson 82 we will look at an easy 5 note (pentatonic) scale that works well when improvising over a Major 7 #5 chord. This chord can be challenging when you’re starting out and this group of 5 notes are fairly easy to hear and play. We will look at this pentatonic scale, one intervalic melody derived from the scale, and improvising using the scale over a bass and drums play along. This pentatonic scale is made up of the fallowing notes over C Major7 #5 (1,2,3,#5,7,1) C, D, E, G#, B, C. One interesting fact about this group of 5 notes is that all are common to 3 differnet scales that are often used when improvising over a Major 7 #5 chord. C lydian augmented (3rd mode of A melodic minor) C, D, E, F#, G#, A, B, C C harmonic major (major scale with a b13 or b6 degree) C, D, E , F, G, Ab, B , C C Maj#5, 13 natural 11 (3rd mode of A harmonic minor) C, D, E, F, G#, A, B, C The PDF below outlines the scale and the intervalic melody in every key. ~ Enjoy!

Jamie Holroyd Guitar - Improve Your Jazz Guitar Playing Today The Key Bop Chronicles | a blog about improvisation, piano, and the Jazz tradition In a recent appearance on the NPR quiz show ‘Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me”, the actor Kevin Bacon was asked how he felt about ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’, a game which was invented by college students in the 1990s inspired by Bacon’s seeming omnipresence in movies of that era. (I recently ate an excellent takeout burger from Bad Apple, a Chicago bar owned by Craig Fass, one of the inventors of the ‘Six Degrees’ game.) Bacon told Peter Sagal, the host of ‘Wait, Wait’, that he was initially ‘horrified’ to learn of the game. In its simplest form, the game allows one movie buff to challenge another to start with any combination of a film and an actor, move to another film which shares at least one actor with the first film, and continue the sequence until they find the shortest possible path to a film involving Bacon. Bacon said of his initial reaction, ‘I really thought it was a joke at my expense.

Combo for Evere: Comment jouer du Jazz. Comment jouer du Jazz. Il faut distinguer deux disciplines l'improvisation comme soliste (en anglais : 'improviser' ou 'soloist') d'une part, et d'autre part l'accompagnement ('comping') comme équipier ('sideman').Il faut distinguer ensuite deux pratiques, à savoir l'apprentissage et l'exécution. Cette distinction est beaucoup plus subtile qu'il n'y paraît au premier abord. En effet, à la grande différence de l'apprentissage de la musique classique, le but de l'apprentissage du jazz est l'exécution improvisée, et non pas l'exécution exacte, fidèle à une quelconque partition (il n'y a pas de 'texte', au sens où on l'entend en classique). Le but de l'apprentissage du jazz est de parvenir à jouer autre chose que ce que l'on a appris.
