    thanks this is something i’ve been discovering by trial and error,
    i play flute and sax mostly and combining these scales and shifts is great ,i would just suggest that in the minor
    pentatonic C Eb F G Bb – C YOU CAN SLIP IN THE ODD F# AND OCCASSIONALLY THE ODD C#
    WHICH IN EFFECT LEAVES YOU WITH A FULLY CHROMATIC RANGE OF NOTES , though off course the note C# AND F# SHOULD ONLY OCCUR AS PASSING TONES ;WHAT DYA THINK
