I'm teaching myself jazz minor and going through it with a different approach. My approach begins with scale in the first mode to grab the sound and fingering as its a unique sound to my ears. I then move forward from there and play the arpeggios of each mode down the board to get the stretch and sound under my fingers and ears respectively. I recently started to play the R 3 5 7 and their inversions to get a grasp of the sound and other colors of their scale tone. Right now I'm only on the first mode. Till recently I just started to truly dive into this world and its a bit difficult considering I'm using a different approach and teach myself what quite possibly is a whole new language on the bass. Do you feel my approach is too intense or simplistic? How do you approach it? I'd be interested in how everyone else learns the Jazz minor.
