I started SWS a couple of weeks ago and it struck me that "Soloing Without Scales" is a bit of a misnomer as it does not take too long to figure out that the first pattern is based on the top 2 strings of the box 2 minor pentatonic scale. But the way Griff then moves the pattern to different strings is a cool concept. But, just as Griff's "Little Chords" are an abbreviation of a full chord, the 4 note patterns are really abbreviated examples of "the Pentonic Box Scales"! Hence, the subtitle of the course could easily be "Soloing with Little Scales". I think the real value of the course is developing a feel for the rhythmic variations available in even a 4 note pattern. Transferring those rhythmic ideas to solos using the full scales has the potential to really enhance improvisation skills. Another tool for the toolkit! Just an observation.
