In this second book about the altered scale, it is time to explore more interesting and advanced jazz patterns for trombones - using my favorite jazz scale!Bass clef, 98 pages in pdf format.
This is the second book about the altered scale for the trombone. Here you will be presented with an array of patterns that are both challenging, fun to play, and sounds great when you use them in your improvising.
Each pattern is written in all twelve keys. You can use the patterns on both altered dominant chords as well as minor chords.
You will find that some of the less trombone-friendly keys actually get quite playable when using the altered scale. And did you know that all the notes in the altered scale can be used as colors in a dominant chord? Take a look at the notes in the altered scale in C:
C – tonic
Db – the flat 9 in a C7
Eb – the sharp nine
E – the major third
F# (or Gb) – the sharp eleven Ab – the flat thirteen
Bb – the seventh
That is one of the reasons for the scale being so useful in jazz improvising – there are no avoid notes to be aware of.
The book will keep you busy for many hours and practice sessions, while also developing your chops and trombone technique.
