Ten different scales with appropriate licks
example 10: The alTereD DominanT sCale (r-b2-b3-3-b5-b6-b7) Blues guitarists often ignore the chords of the turnaround section, and choose to force the minor Pentatonic of the root chord to fit it.

Adding Notes to the Pentatonic Lick Example
D7 is great for playing over the V chord, and guitarists like Robben Ford and Larry Carlton have made a career out of including such scales in their blues soloing. The lick uses the E Altered scale to create a melody over chord V (E7#9#5) and then resolves to A minor Pentatonic over chord I.
