This week we revisit the PPMV concept and explore Zone 2. If you don't recall or you're just joining in at this point, at Week #3 I dropped a sequence of pentatonic scales that started you down a path of modal realization. Since then I've further developed this idea to something called Parallel Pentatonic Modal Visions, aka PPMV. The PPMV consists of five Zones of action. In each one you'll play the five pentatonic fingerings in one vertical area that are all centered on one common tone - in this case D. If you remember there are also chords tied in. Each scale has a corresponding chord that serves as a picture reference that points to the intended modal intent/sound that scale is meant to have at that location. I tightened that up as well where the chords make even more sense not just to the scales, but to each other.
Have fun with it!
