Mixing scales

Here are some examples of how to mix minor pentatonic and dorian.


Endless 8th notes

I’ve used eighth notes to make the difference between minor pentatonic and dorian easier to see.


min pent to dor


Rhythmic variation

Use the same lick and vary it rhythmically.


min pent to dor 2 

 Long notes

Long notes are always effective. They act as milestones for listeners simply because they last longer than the notes around them. Notice that I removed a note from the original. It wasn’t working with the rhythm I was using.

Repeated notes are also very effective.
