Any scale exercise is a melody. When you practice scale exercises you are practicing playing a lot of similar melodies that you want to have in your ears and in your fingers so you can use them when you improvise jazz solos. In jazz, scale exercises are a part of building vocabulary.

This video covers some great melodic structures that you can practice as scale exercises and add to your vocabulary. I find them extremely useful and you will also hear them being used in a lot of more modern jazz solos by people ranging from Michael Brecker via Peter Bernstein to Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this scale video both interesting and helpful!!

Please check back next week for another lesson, and in the meantime please catch up with me on my website and social media pages!!
