The Diminished Scale: Theory and Practice

September 29, 2012
Juampy Juarez
Price per Unit (piece):

In this Master Class I show my ideas with  this marvelous symmetrical scale.  The diminished tonality is a big part of modern jazz sound and contemporary classical compositions.  The scale has many melodic variations and lots of possible triads and chords that, in modern player’s hands, these tools will become nice colors to add to their music.  Besides this, the  third minor symmetry that this scale has a spicy taste, a very modern flavor, that the student could hear in the music of Allan Holdsworth, John Coltrane, Igor Stravinsky, Bela Bartok, Adam Rogers, and many more.
The Diminished tonality is a must if the student wants to sound like the contemporary improviser .
Examples with phrases, licks, both scalar and triadic, applied to  easy blues progressions and famous standards, plus II V I   are shown in the video.

"I have enjoyed Mike's Master Classes on my computer for more than a year.  Recently, I was able to easily download a class to my new iPad, wow--- the resolution was great, the music was clear and now I am portable!  I am learning some new hip lick or voicing while waiting for the doctor, on my lunch hour or even on a plane.  Check it out)." - Marc S.
