Coltrane made them famous on "Giant Steps," but check out how Green used them in this lesson

Introduction

Digital Patterns are a great way to extend your eighth note lines and add color to chords. Grant Green had several digital patterns that he consistently used in his playing. In this lesson we'll look at his most commonly used patterns, examine how he used them in solos, and finally discuss how we can create our own lines using these same ideas.

Clarification -- In the videos when I say digital patterns are numerical representations of intervals, it's better to think of them as cells of notes with a numerical value that relates to the root of a chord or scale with the root being "1."
