Hi Pedja

Please find my assignment essay attached.

As I knew nothing about theory a couple of weeks ago I decided to start at the beginning.I think I have answered probably the first 3 or 4 of your questions. I know the answers are by no means complete but I think I will continue to add to them so that I build up a sort of text of my learning.

Tony here are your remaining assignments for January.

3rd assignment :

- Read Superimposing with Minor Pentatonics post HERE
- After reading the whole thing with related link posts, think about choosing one chord and one approach you will use for recording!

4th assignment :

- After you have chosen your approach, record a backing track with that chord and on top of that record yourself soloing with 1 or all 3 minor pentatonics corresponding with that mode!


Let me give you an example here. Lets say that you have chosen A minor as your chord. Now you also chose A minor to be treated as II (Dorian sounding). In that case you should play minor pentatonics from G major scale ( A , B and E minor pentatonics) over A min chord in the background. 4th assignment asks you only to pick 1 but it also allows you to use all 3 pentatonics if you want to.
Backing track doesn't have to be anything fancy for this purpose. Just guitar playing the chord will do, if you want to add bass and drums to that to make it sound tighter go ahead!

Deadline for these assignments is 31st of January! Let me know if you have any questions !

Pedja

Hi Pedja

Here is my attempt, literally improvised and done in one take as I do not have any more time at the moment.

I used a Dm chord and played Am pentatonic over it.

I know its rather short and not very good I will have another go soon.

Hi Tony,

I love the feel in this take, sounds like Gypsy Jazz !
Most times you played A min pentatonic, however there are spots where you played F note instead of E making it D min pentatonic. I will accept this take as it shows superimposing!
