Over the years, this is probably the main reason why I've noticed that a lot of the guitarists I've met, and who I've studied from, will gravitate to using just a few altered interval patterns in their playing with their focus being more on a specific altered idea when composing or improvising.
Phrygian Dominant Pentatonic shares a very close resemblance to the slightly more common Dominant (b9) Pentatonic, (which has a perfect 5th rather than a lowered 6th). NOTE: The Dominant (b9) Pentatonic is generally referred to as the, "Dominant 7 (b9)," arpeggio.
In this lesson, I will demonstrate the scale pattern for Phrygian Dominant Pentatonic and I will include a melody line so viewers can hear it's unique sound in some type of musical context. Enjoy the lesson plan!
