Welcome to the seventh lesson of the Modal pentatonic series. In the previous lessons we discussed how we could use the pentatonic formula (Root, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th) and apply it to the modes. Today we will use that concept over an A Aeolian scale and combine that pentatonic scale with the full Aeolian scale to create a melodic solo.
The Aeolian pentatonic will include the following notes:
Memorize the scales and work in tempo with precision. Once you are comfortable with the licks, try to write your own using the provided scales.
