This book examines working with pentatonic scales in a few interesting ways. Part one teaches you how to use them modally, just like major and minor scales to create more integrated bass lines for rock chord progressions. Part two explores this further with soloing ideas using modal pentatonic fragments, and using multiple tonic centers over chords.
