    Beautiful Mike! Hey One of the Dominant 7 scale lessons that’s coming soon is on “Patterns” and I think you’ll be able to incorporate them into your playing almost right away….especially this tune cause they’re (One of them anyway) is kinda on the jazzy side.

    Also, your 2nd last altissimo note got a little rasp to it and so this is a little of what we talked about “splitting” those notes. Don’t know if it was intentional but regardless check it out and try moving on from there because there was definately something there!

    Thanks folks, Brother – I think I just went from F to E to C#.

    Johnny, Looking forward to the next dominants 7th lesson! I’ve been working through the dominant 7th scales in all keys. In all the lessons I’ve taken none of the teachers really emphasized this scale, weird. Yeah I think that note split was more accidental than deliberate! I’ve been working rolling my bottom lip a little forward on the mouthpiece and that seems to get the split note thing happening. Now to be able to do it in a gig situation…

    Great to hear. I’ll be focusing more on the dom 7 because it’s very close to the major pentatonic and so these 2 are SO useful for blues and rock…of course Jazz too.
    at home we can hit and miss and try try try again but not on the stage!
