Pentatonic scales and modern jazz go hand in hand just like guitar and pentatonic scales do. In this video I am going to try to bring the two together using a 12 bar blues and demonstrating 9 ways you can apply pentatonic scales to this chord progression. The ideas are not only going to be on which scale to use on which chord, but more about finding a series of pentatonic scales that you can use to create other movements on top of the jazz blues!!

The blues is a great progression to explore reharmonizations and super-imposed pentatonic scales. There are a lot of very standard chord changes that can be approached in many interesting ways. Most of the examples are using several scales to demonstrate other ways to move through the changes, but there are also a few surprising scale choices for a chord here and there!!

Each of the concepts are demonstrated on the 12 bar F blues and then the idea is analyzed and explained.

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this pentatonic scale blues lesson 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!!
