1. Blues Shuf­fle in G Here’s an up­tempo 24-bar blues shuf­fle in G to get you started. For scales, con­sider us­ing G mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G-Bb-C-D-F), G mi­nor blues (G-Bb-C-C#-D-F) as well as G Do­rian mode (G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F) and G Mixoly­dian mode (G-A-B-C-DE-F). Of course know­ing and out­lin­ing the arpeg­gios for this ba­sic I-IV-V (G7-C7-D7) blues is more than help­ful too! 2. F Do­rian Funky Rock Jam This is a specif­i­cally F Do­rian mode two-chord vamp (Fm-Bb), which means if you were to play a seven-note scale on this, F Do­rian is your top choice (F-G-Ab-Bb-C-DEb). Of course you can also stick with F mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (F-Ab-BbC-Eb) and even add the ‘blue note’ B to make it the F Blues scale for ex­tra bluesy colour­ing. 3. Ly­dian Groov­ing (A) Here’s a groove-based A Ly­dian mode track, which you can use to get your Zappa/Vai/Sa­tri­ani licks out! It fea­tures a ba­sic two-chord vamp, which al­ter­nates be­tween the chords A and B/A. A Ly­dian mode con­sists of the notes A-B-C#-D#-E-F#-and-G#. 4. Medium Swing Jazz Blues (G) This is a jazz blues in G and although you can attack it from a ba­sic blues per­spec­tive mix­ing the G ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic (G-A-B-D-E) and the G mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G-Bb-CD-F), you can also arpeg­giate your way around the chords – ef­fec­tively bring­ing out more of the colour in­her­ent in this bril­liant pro­gres­sion. This is es­pe­cially handy when deal­ing with bar 6 (C# dim chord, arp = C#-E-G-Bb) and bar 8 (E7 chord, arp = E-G#-B-D) of the 12-bar pro­gres­sion. Cre­ated for you by Ja­cob Quist­gaard.
