“Solo over Coltrane changes using only the basic pentatonic scale!”
 
Believe it or not, one of the above statements is actually true. Using only the basic pentatonic scale, you can solo over the changes in “Giant Steps” (Coltrane, J. (1959). On Giant Steps [CD]. ATLANTIC / WEA, 1998) at close to the maximum speed that you are able to play.
