M4 - Project  1

Jamming with a Blues in A using A minor and A major Pentatonic's

12 Bar Basic Slow Blues in A

A - NOTE

By now you should be totally familiar and comfortable with all your Pentatonic patterns shown in Module 3 Project 3


B - Jamming with a Slow Blues in A

You can open two instances of the Pentatonic slide rule as shown in the picture below

The idea is that you can set two different scales and highlight two different patterns to practice


The Diagrams Below shows the Pentatonic Patterns A major Pentatonic (also known as the F# minor Pentatonic) (picture No. 1)

and the A minor Pentatonic (also known as the C major Pentatonic)  (picture No. 2)


I have selected some notes (The RED Ovals) just as an example and suggestion to start experimenting with for soloing with the Video (A slow Blues in A) shown below the pictures


C- Do the pictures make sense? If not you need to revise

D1 - LET US START


FIRST

Just play the Video below all the way through a few times and just practise and play around, experimenting with the A major Pentatonic Pattern only


DO THAT NOW   (Do not rush this)


D2 - NEXT


SECOND

Just play the Video again all the way through a few times and just practise and play around, experimenting with the A minor Pentatonic Pattern only


DO THAT NOW  (Do not rush this)

D3 - NEXT


THIRD

Now play the Video again all the way through a few times, but this time just practise and play around, experimenting with both the A major and the A minor Pentatonic Patterns and also focus using the highlighted (red ovals) notes shown in the Pictures 1 and 2, but you are not limited the these only, any of the blue numbers can be used


DO THAT NOW   (Do not rush this)


A major Pentatonic (also known as the F# minor Pentatonic)

A minor Pentatonic (also known as the C major Pentatonic)
