Whole-tone scale over Am7

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

This demon­strates the sound of the Whole-Tone scale up (or down) a semi­tone over a mi­nor 7 chord. The most ef­fec­tive way to use this is as an out­side sound, so I’ve put to­gether a cou­ple of rea­son­ably straight­for­ward lines over an Am7 chord mov­ing from Am7 to Bb Whole-Tone and back to Am7, the first start­ing in A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic mov­ing down in groups of

four notes, then keep­ing the pat­tern go­ing switch­ing to Bb Whole-Tone in the sec­ond bar and re­solv­ing back to A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic in the fourth. The sec­ond line is an as­cend­ing pat­tern, this time mov­ing from A Do­rian to Bb Whole-Tone and re­solv­ing back to A Do­rian to­wards the end of the penul­ti­mate bar.
