A new lesson has been recently published on the website. It's about 4 measures of the great Pat Martino's guitar improvisation on Sunny (Bobby Hebb), taken from the Umbria jazz live version with John Scofield. Sunny is a great tune to jam over; Pat Martino's solo ranks among his best. Repeating a short phrase like this is characteristic of Martino's approach to soloing. It creates structure and is a great way to create intensity and build energy.
- Measure 1: Pat Martino plays notes from the A Dorian mode, specifically an A minor triad. It is good to remember that a minor triad is made up of a root (1), a minor third (b3) and a perfect fifth (5).
- Measure 2, he plays notes from the G aeolian mode, characterised by the presence of Eb which is the minor sixth of this mode. Notice that the difference between the dorian and the aeolian mode is that the sixth is major in the dorian mode and minor in the aeolian mode. These two modes can be applied to any minor chords.
- Measure 3, you will notice an A minor seventh arpeggio over FM7. Minor seventh arpeggios are built with the first (1), the minor third (b3), the fifth (5) and the minor seventh (b7).
- Measure 4 (II-V), there are notes from the B locrian mode with an approached tone, the #9 (Eb).
