One Response to Altered Pentatonics

    Thanks for the excellent lesson Jon!

    As I finished reading it, a quote appeared below in the left hand corner that says,
    “CAUTION: Perfection is a moving target.”

    Fascinating…….
    That coincides *precisely* with the simple but highly effective idea presented in Altered Pentatonics:

    A song progression is in motion, and by moving a single tone per chord,
    melody and harmony can connect perfectly!
