EXAMPLE1 de­vel­op­ing chord so­los from the mi­nor pen­ta­tonic scale

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY JAZZ -

cd track 14 the style of Kenny Bur­rell – uses the Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic notes in dou­ble-stops (har­monised in 3rds), in this ex­am­ple this adds an ad­di­tional note to the Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale, the Ma­jor 6th (in this case B ) to the scale – im­ply­ing the Do­rian mode – a hugely use­ful ap­proach in many Mi­nor con­texts. Fi­nally, Ex­am­ple 1d takes a more edgy ap­proach in the style of Robben Ford and Joe Dioro (by way of Miles Davis’ post-bop key­board play­ers); the Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic notes are stacked in 4ths (known as quar­tal har­mony); for added dis­so­nance

can be al­tered chro­mat­i­cally. So sim­ple but so ef­fec­tive.
