    Blues scale…1 b3 4 b5 5 b7 8 (octave)
    Major pentatonic… 1 2 3 5 6 8 (octave)
    minor pentatonic…1 b3 4 5 b7 8 (octave) pattern either melodic or rhythmic

    repetition is hip! loop your lines..hooks the listener

    phrasing with intent..use subdivisions to help you play accurately and groove heavy

    listen to the high hat play 8th notes
    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
    imply 16th notes in your rhythmic concept, now hearing
    1 e and a 2 e and a 3 e and a 4 e and a

    set up a drum machine pattern at any tempo, and use these ideas…improvise, create something new..record and listen back to your playing…discover tendencies…self discovery is the best teacher!!
