Confidently use several scale patterns

Using the classic jazz standard “So What” by Miles Davis you will learn this modal song in two parts. In the first part of the lesson, you will learn about the dorian mode how to create dorian chord voicings which make this song so iconic.

In the second part of the lesson, you will learn different ways of using both the dorian and pentatonic scales for improvisation. Several scale patterns that will boost your improvisation creativity are also included. 

In addition to some really cool pentatonic and dorian improvisation patterns that will have heads turning, you’re also going to learn some super-hip quartal voicings.

These are the same type of voicings used by Bill Evans and other iconic jazz pianists.
