Ex­am­ple6 John Scofield

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Scofield leads in around Bb7 (bar 31) then moves into Bb Blues scale on the Bb7 chord and sug­gests Bb7#5 re­solv­ing to the Eb7. The fol­low­ing two bars fea­ture a char­ac­ter­is­tic ‘out’ sound­ing dou­ble-stop ma­jor 7th idea slid­ing into the Fm7 then Eb7. Over the Eb7 he comes down Eb9#11, then moves back up Edim7 and an­tic­i­pates the Bb7 chord, play­ing around Bb Mixoly­dian then Eb Ly­dian b7 over the Eb9, end­ing back around Bb7 slid­ing up to the B to sug­gest G7. On the Cm7 he re­turns to the ma­jor 7th dou­ble-stop idea, then pro­gresses into a Bb Mi­nor mov­ing to chro­matic triplet idea over the F7 and turn­around and end­ing on an dou­ble-stop 11th in­ter­val on the root and 5th (F) on the Bb7.
