MASTERCLASS: Scale & Arpeggio Phrasing

January 20, 2017:
Scale and Arpeggio Phrasing

PART ONE:  In part one, our focus will be on redesigning melodies that are composed from the 5-tone Major and Minor Pentatonic scales. The first example will cover a Major Pentatonic scale melody in the key of, "A Major." We'll reorganize the Pentatonic idea to apply phrasing that will operate with the 7-tone "A Major" scale. Our second example will carry on with this concept but we will switch over to the 5-tone "A Minor" Pentatonic and the 7-tone "A Natural Minor," scale.

Watch Part 2 of this lesson in the members area where we'll study the concepts of transforming 5 and 7-tone Major and Minor scale melodies to phrases that target chord tones of an underlying progression using "Arpeggios."
