Bobby McFerrin Demonstrates the Power of the Pentatonic Scale


Talking about expectations.
Expectations. Watch Okay Yeah! What’s interesting to me about that is regardless of where I am– anywhere. Every audience gets that. But it doesn’t matter what you know that’s just you know. The pentatonic scale–for some reason. if you’re looking for a job in neuroscience.

    This is really beautiful. I know people like to exaggerate things on the internet but I like to speak the truth and I’ve never shed a tear for something like this. Usually for music that resonates and strikes a deep nerve but I really think this struck the deepest nerve of all and took me back to how simple music was for me as a baby. no distractions of wordplay and double entendres. this is just one unified, beautiful and harmonious sound. i will never forget this

    The reason why everyone gets the Pentatonic scale is because its and audible form of the goldern ratio, which is at the root of our understanding of sound
