Scale patterns – 3 scale patterns you must learn
Training your scale patterns is great exercise, but are you training the right scale patterns?
Are you actually using the patterns you are training in your playing?
You do not want to use hours of practice time on something which you can not directly apply to your playing and improvising.
You want to practice the patterns which you actually do use and which sounds the best when playing and using these in your improvisation.
Søren is playing “Like someone in love” in Bb
In this video
I will show you 3 great scale patterns you must know
We will apply these to the major scale
