The Dominant 7th Pentatonic Scale
Essentially, this is a very cool version of the Pentatonic Scale and one that's definitely worth covering in a lesson. Some other names you might find for this scale are either the, Mixolydian Pentatonic, (or respectively in the old jazz circles), it's often called the, "Dominant 7th Pentatonic." It is also important to mention that this layout of notes could also be viewed as a, "Dominant 9th Arpeggio." But, whatever manner you decide to name this pattern, it has several different ways of being superimposed upon a Dominant 7th chord, (or over altered dominants as well). In the video I begin with a quick look at how the notes sit upon the fingerboard. Then I will run through the scale degrees. I wrap-up by taking things onto the fingerboard by moving into some of the possible applications of this scale. Watch the video lesson below:
