We get it…scales can get boring, and the same minor pentatonic scale gets overused. But guess what? You can make a simple minor pentatonic scale sound exotic simply by adding different notes.

There are SEVEN different scales that all build off of the A minor scale, and Ayla goes through all of them:

  1. A Blues Scale
  2. A Dorian Scale
  3. A Romanian/Ukrainian Minor Scale
  4. A Natural Harmonic Scale
  5. A Hungarian Scale
  6. A Hirajõshi Scale
  7. A Raga Asavari Scale

These scales are worth checking out in more depth — so download the scales chart under the video and find ways to incorporate them into your playing. They bring in many colors to an otherwise mundane scale and bring a variety of musical cultures together.
