Short Technical Study #5 (Pentatonic Cells) - minor chord application
With the material presented in this series (Short Technical Studies) I seek to demonstrate some of the creative and fun ways in which I like to isolate and work on specific techniques on the guitar. Each study is designed with a unique concept and goal in mind and utilizes a variety of ways in which the technique can be used on the instrument.
Study #5 focuses on combining 3 note melodic cells from minor pentatonic scales to create a rich and extended sound over minor sonorities. The examples are illustrated over an Amin9 harmony and the three different minor pentatonics we are extracting the cells are A, E and B.
One of the techniques and skills that this study works on is visualizing the mode inversion of all 3 pentatonic scales in the same position of the fretboard so that the voice-leading between them is the closest and smoothers possible.
