In this book, we’ll be using the much-loved minor pentatonic scale as the basis for learning and having a quick way to access the modes of the major scale, as well as the basic seventh chord arpeggios. This means that when you go to improvise, you'll have a vast array of options with which to go beyond pentatonic soloing. Work through this book daily and I guarantee you a smooth and painless transition from pentatonics to incorporating modes and arpeggios into your playing.
The first section of this book deals with the practical side of adding modes to your soloing repertoire via pentatonics; if you already know the theory behind this, you may only need to work from this section of the book. The second section explains the theory behind pentatonics and modes so that you can understand them as they apply to the world of music. You may want to read this section first depending on your knowledge up to this point.
I’ve included some simple backing tracks to practice the concepts in this book, but you may want to use a looper pedal if you have one or any other backing tracks you like.
