Musicarta Pentatonics Workbook
Pentatonic Blues in Two Keys

Part Four

Now for the 'countermelody' material - the little 'answering' melodies in between the main right hand melody phrases.

Watch/listen to the full performance again. The countermelody phrases are indicated in this video.

The counter-melody material in E minor

In the full performance version of the Blues in Two Keys, you repeat the first E minor strain, and that's where the counter-melody material first appears.

Here's the first example.

Here's the second example.

The counter-melody material in A minor

Similar, but not the same...

The final E minor strain

Again, there are usually small 'tweaks' when something comes round a second time.

The full performance

And here's your full and final version, with the manuscript (music) overlaid.
