THE MINOR PENTATONIC SCALE 

 

Kenny Burrell - Lick # 1

In this first lick Kenny Burell played the C minor pentatonic scale over the C7#9. Notice that the C minor pentatonic scale is made up of the following notes : C-Eb-F-G-Bb. It starts with the fifth (G) and goes on with a triplet and two 1/4 bends on beats 3 & 4. You can hear a C7#9 in the second bar (b7-#9-5, root and major third are not strummed).

Kenny Burrell - Lick # 7

You have to play the major third (E) approached with a slide or a hammer-on. Adding the major third to the minor pentatonic scale is a common trick to improvise over dominant 7th chords in jazz and blues music.

Kenny Burrell - Lick # 9

As we saw in lick #7, you can add the major third (E) to the minor pentatonic scale. You can also add another note that belongs to the major scale, this is the major sixth (A). It can bring an interesting color to your jazz blues improvisations. The chord in bar 2 is named C13, you can play it instead of the C7(#9).
