Jazz Guitar Lessons: Pentatonics Part 4 – Applications to Major and Minor Chords
In this series of 5 videos and blog posts, we’ll explore how to use different pentatonic scales in the context of jazz improvisation. Pentatonics can be heard in lots of different jazz contexts: blues, yes … but also within more modern jazz guitar improvisations and compositions.
In this fourth instance of the series, we’ll work through NINE applications of the pentatonic scales to major and minor chords. We’ll use Cmaj7, Cmaj7(#11) a lydian-sounding chord, Am7 and Am6 as examples.
The main feature of this video is the “trade 8’s” where you and I (the teacher) will solo turn by turn. So you get to *hear* the pentatonic ideas, and then try them out for yourself! 🙂
Furthermore: all the backing tracks used in this video are available from the blog post titled “Pentatonics Part 4”.

In short, PART 4 here is all about *applying* everything we learned in PARTS 1 through 3.
