Nov 08 Hexatonic scales are six note scales. This book presents a practical method for the construction of hexatonic scales that are useful for both the improviser and composer. Many modern piano players use hexatonic voicings by stacking the triads to create a particular harmony. As with the other books in this series, there is a play along CD of 24 tracks including 5 demo tracks featuring Jerry to try out all of these different sounds.
One way to create a hexatonic scale is to combine the notes of two triads that don't have any common tones. Triads are incredibly strong sounding melodic devices. They are easy to think of and combining them is an accessible task for the soloist. Practicing hexatonics is great way to improve technique and it's also great for ear training. Hearing these different combinations of triads against different chords is a must for expanding your tonal pallet. Figuring out which triads lend particular colors to differ- ent chords adds detail to your playing. Some hexatonics are consonant sounding against a chord type.
