CELLS: Intro


This book takes many of the short licks or 'Cells' arranges

them in order of quality ( major, minor, dominant and diminished )

and discusses the 'signature' characteristics of each.

Simple 'Cells' are followed by ones that carry new

ideas / alterations. This element of continuity enables

us to easily compare the changes to each new cluster.

Clusters have been chosen for:

  • classic (cliche) note combinations
  • quality changes within the chord
  • extensions and substitutions to set chords
  • intervals and enclosures
  • or other qualities that makes them stand out as

      usable / interesting licks
