Using this resource will help you play contemporary scales from memory, in all positions and voice-led permutations, easily envisioning scales as key signatures and shapes across your instrument. Developing harmonic fluency will help you become more fluent in your improvisations, whether in jazz, blues, rock, pop, or world music.

 

From the Intro: I recommend you practice each scale in the following ways:
1) Play the scale in root position

2) Play the scale in extended range (first position): Screen Shot 2014-05-21 at 1.58.30 PM

 

 

 

 

3) Play the scale in all inversions in extended range. Practicing these jazz scales for violin, viola, and cello will allow you to improvise better

 

 

 

 

4) Play many patterns/sequences from the scale. For example: Learn to improvise on violin, viola, and cello with these jazz scales

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) Play voice led “scale pairs” (Play a pattern which alternates between two scales. For example: Play one bar of a pattern in G melodic minor followed by one bar of D altered) Practice multiple jazz scales on violin, viola, and cello

These scale pairs could follow my recommended list of “chord pairs” including the following: 1-5, 1- 5min, 1-b7, 1-1dim, 1-4, 1-4min, 1-b2, etc.

 

6) Play voice led scale patterns, in time, confirming to the harmonic rhythm of chord progressions in any tune.
