New to the Inside Improvisation series, "Hexatonics" deals in depth with the improv technique of creating six note scales with triad pairs. Includes nearly 300 pages of exercises and play along/ demonstration tracks on the CD.
“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. We improvise “in” the sound of the voicing and using hexatonic voicings and lines can lend a very contemporary sound.
As with the other books in this series, there is a play along CD to try out all of these different sounds. If you liked checking out Vol. 2 Pentatonic, you’ll have fun with Vol. 7 Hexatonics. Good Luck!” - Jerry Bergonzi
