All musicians of different styles are familiar to blues scale. However, it is difficult to imagine a musician who would not use the pentatonic scale in his repertoire.
This app contains a unique set of modal pentatonic scales, which you can play over certain chords. There are many different pentatonic scales (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean). Some of them have several names. Therefore, in this app we use more academic scale names. Pentatonic scales played on the 6 and 5 strings, with 2 notes on the string (2-2 concept), which contributes to easy learning and memorization. Some pentatonic scales contain extended fingering. The earlier musician starts using extended fingering, the better.
Modal Pentatonic Scales app is a unique material for your improvisations!

Ratings and Reviews

Great practice app

Happy camper12

Like all the Fonexsis apps this is a fantastic tool. The diverse set of exercises and the background chord accompaniment take the tedium out of practicing. Expensive but honestly worth it, I've been using these apps almost daily now for over a year and my technique has improved markedly.
