EX­AM­PlE3 Cho­rus of BLues In f

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

This ex­am­ple fea­tures a cho­rus of a slow blues in F, with Stern sit­ting back through­out. He starts in F Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic over the F7, then takes the same idea down a whole step, com­ing down Eb Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic over the Bb7 and im­ply­ing Gm and F over the change back to F7/C. He then moves up an F# ma­jor ar­peg­gio on beats 3 and 4 over the F7/C, sug­gest­ing Cm7 over the F7 and C#m over the B7, and re­solv­ing to Bb Mixoly­dian on the Bb7. He ap­pears to be treat­ing the Bdim7 as C7, play­ing C Al­tered (or Half-Whole Di­min­ished) over it re­solv­ing to the 3rd (A) on the F7 and mov­ing down F Mixoly­dian over the F7/C and E7 chords. Over the Am7b5 he seems to out­line F7, D7 and Gm7, then F and D7b9 over the D7 re­solv­ing to the mi­nor 3rd (Bb) on the Gm7 and mov­ing to C7 on beat 3, then C Al­tered over the Db7 and C7 and an­tic­i­pates the res­o­lu­tion to F7 over the fi­nal turn­around.
