En esta ocasi贸n te propongo aprender a utilizar la vieja escala pentat贸nica menor para conseguir diferentes sonoridades. Ello implica ubicarla a diferentes distancias de la fundamental y sobre todo, aprender a frasear de un modo diferente y a resolver en la nota deseada. Hay much铆simo por aprender aqu铆!

Voodoo Blues Scale

Teachers creating interesting lessons by mapping uncommon scales with guitarLayers 馃槈En esta lecci贸n te quiero hablar de un sonido blues tan com煤n como interesante: la escala Voodoo Blues. La estructura interna es totalmente id茅ntica a una escala de blues menor (1 b3 4 b5 5 b7) a excepci贸n de la b7, que se sustituye por la 6. (1 b3 4 b5 5 6) Es sorprendente como cambiar una sola nota en un grupo de sonidos puede tener un efecto tan notable!

Three-Note Voicings

It is not that uncommon, among jazz musicians, to use three-note chords that can work as more complex chords structures.
Three-notes chords often are more handy and essential and, if we have the ability to obtain quickly their inversions, we can obtain a lot of voicings that can work as seventh chords.
In the picture below we have the notes C D Ab that can work as: Amin (maj7), Fm6, E7 (b13), Bb7 (9).
Try yourself the sound ! 馃槈

All three-notes chords, their inversions on string sets and their equivalent seventh-chords, are automatically generated with guitarLayers guitarlayers.com

Thanks!

Personally, I use this knowledge for triad pair improvisation. B altered: play A dim B dim, or C minor D minor, or Fmaj G maj. Other combinations eg with Eb aug are also possible of course, but using 2 neighbouring triads of the same quality saves thinking while playing.

Thanks great info

Personally, I prefer 3 notes per strings. I really don't find these 4 notes/2 notes patterns useful at all

Amazing! Thank you for this
