  • Sometimes, playing notes that are not in the key of the chord progression you work with will have a great result. This is what we will work on in today's lesson. In order to make this concept work, it is important to remember to not stay too long on a lick outside the original tonality. Doing so will completely lose the listener.

    Let's experiment these ideas with the minor pentatonic scale. We'll play in the key of G Dorian using an G# minor pentatonic to sound out. That G# is a great choice as all of its notes are completely outside of the original G Dorian scale.

    Remember to resolve your licks with a note inside the original key. Be as clean as possible in the following examples and be aware of the rhythm you are playing with.
