A Daily Dose of Minor Pentatonics for Improvisation Bass Clef Instruments Book Description:

The use of pentatonics in improvisation is a long-standing tradition that runs the gamut of musical styles and genres. When played generically as eighth notes, the interval structure implies a chord outline but with enough step wise motion to maintain linear direction. When the scale is started on the downbeat, the minor third intervals create a natural off-beat accent that is inherent to a contemporary swing style. Pentatonics are easily permutated into attractive symmetrical and sequential melodic shapes that in many cases have become recognizable cliches. As a scale that doesn't distinctly define a specific harmony, multiple harmonic situations can be negotiated with a single well understood pentatonic. The exercises in this text are intended to develop technique, fluency and awareness of melodic possibility with minor pentatonics in all keys.

Although there are many fine scale books on the market, none of them really go INSIDE scales to explore the various intervals, harmonized scales in triads and diatonic 7ths, neighbor tones to achieve some chromaticism and how to employ multiple uses of the scales (modes) by superimposing them over the
