In Part 2 of our series on diminished dominants, we get a little deeper into this concept and create some vocabulary we can use in real life improvising situations.
Our vehicle is going to be ii-V-i progressions, which are the most common progression in almost any tune you will see. By learning this vocabulary and plugging it into our solos, you will start to hear this concept reflected in your playing.
Once you have incorporated the scales from part 1 of the series, start working on these great vocabulary lines and making them a real part of your solos. Remember, this will take time and is not something that will happen overnight!
Go slowly and methodically through these exercises and concentrate on them deeply. The sooner you learn to practice with 100% concentration and effort, the sooner you will see the results.
