Pentatonic Hanon 27-07-19 - minor
The right hand covers minor seventh up to the fifth, with #4/b5, and plays in triplets (not shown).
The pattern as a whole ascends by whole tones from C to G sharp.
The left hand covers the whole minor pentatonic scale plus #4/b5.
The LH tuplet crotchets/quarter notes in the second bar shouldn't be a problem - they align with every other of the tuplet quavers/eighth notes in the right hand.
Here is the MS for Pentatonic Hanon 27-07-19, Ascending.
Note: Learn the exercise one key/position at a time. You can ignore the F# and G# minor patterns for now - or for ever, in fact!
Here is the MS for Pentatonic Hanon 27-07-19, Descending. The pattern descends by whole tones from C sharp to F sharp.
The performance is the second half of the video, above.
As above, feel free to concentrate on just the 'easy' Bm/Am/Gm portion initially.
The descending half is written andplayed low quite: play an octave higher ad lib.
The pdf download link (above) covers both the ascending and descending halves.
