Quick Win #20

The OTS Modes and 1 Major Pentatonic scale

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • every OTS Mode contains only 1 Pentatonic Major scale, which is an overlap with the seven Church Modes
  • you can use the Pentatonic Major scale to connect the Church Modes to the OTS Modes


You might still remember that the Lydian Dominant Pentatonic works on all the OTS Modes. Please review the connections and transitions between the various pentatonic scales, and your musical vocabulary will become more defined and elegant.
