Example 8 Minor Pentatonic Cell superimposition (exercise)
Our final pair of ideas is more exercise based and typical of the type of material you’ll find in Khan’s method books. We begin by juxtaposing a specific Pentatonic line, in this case a fragment of example 5, against minor and major chords based around where these events are found within the associated harmony. So, d dorian comes from the parental key of C and the minor chords in this key are dm, Em and Am, so these are our Pentatonic options here. Using the same logic, C lydian comes from the key of G. The three minor chords in G are Em, Am and Bm, so these are our Pentatonic options here.
