McCoy Tyner - McCoy Tyner-Style Playing 'Outside'

McCoy Tyner - McCoy Tyner-Style Playing 'Outside' for Piano Riff Lesson


This piece is part of our McCoy Tyner Piano Licks Compilation

  • In this example we start using D minor pentatonic scale
  • A common trick to move 'outside' the original scale is to take the minor pentatonic a minor third higher than the original key - in this case that would bf F minor.
  • The left hand also uses chords from this scale (built on 4ths)
  • Despite the move to F minor, however, we still keep the D in the bass
Tempo: 99BPM
