[Bar 16 (A7 shape #4)] This line is com­posed us­ing four dif­fer­ent notes of A Mixoly­dian: note that three of them are chord tones. [Bar 21 (A7 shape #5)] There are two pos­si­ble per­spec­tives for the first three notes of this fi­nal line; one could see them as two notes of A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic and Blues scales, re­solv­ing to the 3rd of A Mixoly­dian (C#); the same three notes could be seen as a ‘dou­ble chro­matic’ ap­proach to the C# chord-tone: here, ap­proached via a com­bi­na­tion of notes a semi­tone above and be­low. Note that the re­main­ing three notes are all chord tones.
