Scott McGill: Skype Guitar Instruction - Outside Pentatonic Jazz John Coltrane McCoy Tyner Concepts

In this short mini session I demonstrate some of the Outside Pentatonic techniques of the great jazz innovators John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner and how we can adapt them to the guitar effectively. I apply these techniques to the Pentatonic Scale Positions that we already know on the instrument so that they are easily applied and assimilated into our playing. I utilize a few important concepts that were used by Coltrane on "Pursuance" and Tyner on "Passion Dance" among many others.
I was a student of ten years of Jazz Theorist/Pedagogue Dennis Sandole, teacher of John Coltrane, James Moody, Jim Hall, Pat Martino, and many other important jazz musicians. I have recorded and played with musicians such as Michael Manring, Percy Jones, and Jordan Rudess, and producers Neil Kernon and David Torn.
