How to make the Pentatonic scale an Altered scale

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, December 21, 2018, In : how to improvise 

This time we go nuts with the Pentatonic scale, so much so we get what can be called an Altered scale.  You may ask what an Altered scale is? an Altered scale is one which all the notes are altered either

raised or flattened and this Pentatonic scale is just that except for the minor third and the seventh, so we end up with the flat ninth, raised eleventh and flat thirteenth or sixth

Kill with the Pentatonics - Super imposing

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, In : how to improvise 

What we do is actually improvise over a chord that is not there, it sounds crazy but thats the idea, so here we improvise over an A minor chord but for the Super imposing part we use a D Pentatonic scale giving us the flat sixth. 

Now you might say that we get that note anyway if we use a natural minor or Harmonic minor or Melodic minor scale. But if we want to keepour Pentatonic sound and also in this case our Pentatonic chops we do it this way, see the video to get a better idea...

Alternate picking improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, In : how to improvise 

This video is a little different than the chops I have posted and the only reason I created the tablature for it is only so you can see exactly what I did. I also need to say that this is of course not a lick that is extremely interesting but the system to create it is extremely useful and interesting. So now that you have seen what I do I really encourage you to start using the system yourself and create som really cool runs and licks that fits well into the scale patterns because it th...

Blues Shred Improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : how to improvise 

This lick is composed from the B minor Blues scale but played all legato style and three notes per string style. I actually see the lick from the first position of the Blues scale which is B minor but I connect it with the B natural minor which shares notes with D major which is the key of the song so this way I can easily make my way to the lick I actually create the melodic side of the soloing from the B natural minor. The other thing which is really cool in this system is to combining...

Extreme Pentatonic Improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : how to improvise 

Here is a Pentatonic lick played shred guitar style three notes per string completely legato and also to a jamtrack so you can here how it sounds in a musical situation. Added to this lick also some string skipping which is sometimes necessary when you play pentatonic three notes per string style. 

To impliment this lick into an actual improvisation situation I made a system that makes it easier to do this. In this particular lick even though the lick is pentatonic I analyze it...
