Inside Improvisation Series Volume 7
Hexatonic scales are six note scales. This book presents a practical method for the construction of hexatonic scales that are useful for both the improviser and the composer. Many modern piano players use hexatonic voicings, by stacking thetriads to create a particular harmony. By improvising in the sound of the voicing and using hexatonic voicings and lines, a very contemporary sound is established.
As with the other books in this series, there is a play along CD to try out all of the different sounds.
