In this book I present to you some of the ideas and concepts I have been using to extract harmonic information from the pentatonic scale. Being one of the most universal scales and used often by most guitar players, its chordal applications come in handy to add color and enhance the sounds and hues of our existing harmonic vocabulary.
Here I have extracted some of my favorite voicings from the “A minor” pentatonic scale. The usage and application of these voicings can happen in many different ways. Amin7, Dmin9, Cmaj7, Fmaj7, Bbmaj7(#11), and F#7alt are amongst my favorite candidates, but I invite you to explore substituting these new harmonic structures for any chord over which you use the “A minor” pentatonic melodically.
The study and explorations of the concepts should start in one key (harmony) and then progressively move through all keys and standard harmonic progressions to develop a full and comfortable application for any musical situation.
Most importantly I hope you have fun with the material and adapt the concept to your own way of playing and thinking about the fretboard.
