Thoughts as you go over the materials today
The pentatonic scales and exercises are very important – they are foundational to blues and jazz. You’ll want to review these on a regular basis. They are a subcomponent of the regular scales but you need to practice them as scales of “fewer notes” to familiarize yourself with them as a unique collection of notes.
Review: C# minor scales and 3rds
Review this scale and in 3rds.
Do: G and Db pentatonic scales and 3rd exercises
Learn these pentatonic scales in intervals of thirds. Pentatonic scales are a foundation for doing improv in jazz and blues. Good stuff to work on on a regular basis.
Review: Ab arpeggio exercises.
The benefit of repeating the exercise from yesterday along with working on new material is that there is such a thing as muscle memory. But there is a benefit to letting the brain process at night what you learned in the daytime, repeating it the next day to make it fresh and reinforced.
Do: F arpeggio exercises
A little easier key. Almost fun compared to Ab. But all work and no play makes Jack a dull musician.
