Hi Steve, I don't have a course like that myself, however my friend Colin Daniel at Riff Ninja has one, which you can find here.

I'm on-line and just sat thru Part 1....loved it, and the White board & your narrative.
I captured a few screen shots to look at, that I can use in my spare time without the PC...keep on keeping on.

Hi Jonathon, many thanks for your excellent course, just 1 point in part 2 I did not understand fully, you talk about dropping 2 notes from the Ionic scale to form the Pentatonic scale, are these specific notes? if so why these two? hope this question does not appear too dumb. Once again many thanks Alan

Hi Alan,
Yes, the two notes that are dropped are specific - in relation to the major (Ionic) scale they would be the IV and the VII note. Those are the two notes that potentially conflict with others, which leaves only non-conflicting notes that all sound good together in any order or combination.

Thanks for your great lessons!
When you mention relative minor are you referring to natural, harmonic or melodic minor?

    The natural minor. The other two are modifications of the minor scale.
