Giant Steps #2
Check it out!
This is only one set of minor 3rd related keys. If you can play this then I’m sure you can figure the other two out yourself.
I prefer to memorize everything I compose for my practicing.
The link is below for the PDF.
This is good for technique as well as learning the minor 3rd relationships.
The ascending pattern is 3-1-4-6-5 with the 5 then becoming the 3 of the key a minor 3rd up.
The descending pattern is 5-1-2-4-3 with the 3 then becoming the 5 of the key a minor 3rd down.
Obviously there are 3 sets of these.
I don’t practice patterns with the idea that I’m going to insert them verbatim in specific places in my improvisations but rather I’m trying to broaden my sonic vocabulary and improve my technique.
Let me know what you think.
