EX­AM­PLE 10 BLUES LICKS OVER JAZZY CHANGES

TRACK 22

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

Although this pro­gres­sion con­tains a few ex­tended chords, the se­quence can be ne­go­ti­ated ef­fec­tively us­ing the E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic or mi­nor Blues scale, as this ex­am­ple demon­strates. The F# (ma­jor sec­ond) of the E mi­nor scale is added in bar 6 to im­ply Ly­dian Dom­i­nant sounds (fourth mode of the melodic mi­nor) over the C13 chord while adding the nat­u­ral 5th over the B7#5. The se­cret is to tar­get chord tones com­mon with notes in the scale. This ex­am­ple il­lus­trates Car­los’s more bluesy ap­proach dur­ing the 80s when he more fre­quently ap­plied vi­brato to sus­tained bends.
