EXAMPLE2 BB kinG
Our note selection here is derived mainly from the chord tones of Bb7 and Bb Mixolydian mode (Bb-C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb). Eb7, plus F7 Mixolydian and Bb minor Pentatonic and Blues scale (Bb-Db-Eb-E-F-Ab-Bb). It is the mix between the chord tones and the notes of the scales that gives blues the tension and release that’s vital in keeping a solo interesting. As with Example 1, aim to keep your timing relaxed.
