Using Pentatonic Scale over Maj7 chords

Hello guys,

today I'd like to talk about the Pentatonic Scale and its use over Maj7 chords.

The Maj7 chord is not much used in the classic Blues music, but it is in Motown, Soul, R&B and Jazz. In those genres, we have a lot of examples of players who are using Pentatonic Scale to give to their playing that kind of bluesy flavor that made them famous. Just think about George Benson or Kenny Burrel! Love them!
