Scales & Licks

    Scales & Licks

    Scales & Licks – In nearly every kind of music-style scales are the base material out of which composers often if not always have composed their pieces of music. Also all chords, wether if basic or extended, originate from these scales.

    Each musician wether which music-style he´s playing should have a good knowledge about scales as one uppermost priority. This is not different of course in JazzManouche or Gypsyjazz.

    Particularly essential parts of the auditory education of musicians (thus also guitarrists) is happening by the use and training of scales, because by listening to the single intervals of scales the process of understanding and learning to really hear “music” takes place all the same (cf. Frank Sikora, “The new Jazz-harmony”).

    On the following pages of the Scales & Licks-Series we show some of the most useful Scales as well as of scales for JazzManouche:

    Diminished scales

    Licks again are small pieces of music mostly generated from or made out of scales that have been used as whole or partly. So you can generate Licks from Scales if you know about them.
