The Brown’stone: Beautifully Rhythmic & Melodic Major Scale Patterns

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, I’ve got a great scale exercise to help you with melody and rhythmic phrasing. This one follows our last lesson, so be sure to check that out.

This exercise is based on a simple concept that can be applied to any scale. Check this one out. You’ll be glad you did.
