Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

June 6, 2014 | Dorian/Minor in Reverse: New free PDF

If you missed yesterday's Tips and Tricks column, you'll want to be sure to check out the latest in our FFcP exercises, the reverse version of our Dorian/Minor FFcP Studies. Rather than start from the bottom, we go top down and back. It gets interesting especially when you start adding some of the melodic minor variations of the 6th and 7th scale degrees when thinking broken chords (arpeggios).

We continue to expand on these individual exercises with the goal of publishing a supplementary book.

Enjoy: Reverse Dorian/Minor FFcP scales
