This improv etude will help you become comfortable using the scales to solo over the chord changes to the Jobin standard Meditation. The lesson focuses on alternating between major scales and modes with diminished scales, a concept that can be implemented in other jazz tunes as well. The goal is to memorize the scale patterns both in fingering and sound and then create melody within those patterns for your own improv solo. 35 minute video with pprintable PDF in tab and notation plus two MP3 practice tracks at different tempos. It is suggested you also study the chord melody and simple solo.
