univibe brushes blues in Bb
This is a 12-bar in the key of Bb (Bb7-Eb7-Bb7-F7-Eb7-Bb7Gb7-F7), presented in a drums, bass, guitar trio format. Bb may not be your typical guitar key but is common for piano and sax players and worthwhile having some chops for! Minor Pentatonic licks (albeit in Bb) work well here but play the 3/b7 notes of each chord for a bluesier, jazzier sound.
Soft groove in g
This runs the progression G-EmC-Am7-G-F, which is grounded in G Major (G-A-B-C-D-E-F#) except the final chord of F, where you’ll need to tweak your scale usage to G Mixolydian (G-A-B-C-D-E-F) or play mainly notes from the F chord (F-A-C). The second section features G-Am7-G/B-C- G-F, then C-D-Em7-G-Am7-D-G. The same suggestions apply here; G Major mostly, with some G Mixolydian when the F chord occurs.
g Blues Stomper
Here we have a fairly up tempo foot-stomping 12-bar blues in G. Pull out your G minor Pentatonic (G-Bb-C-D-F) or Blues scale (add a Db); or alternatively, try thinking in G Mixolydian mode (G-A-B-CD-E-F) on the I chord (G7), G Dorian (G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F) on the IV chord (C7) and G Major scale (G-A-B-C-D-E-F#) on the V (D7).
B minor Blues
Here we have a blues progression in B minor. Chords are Bm (Im), Em (IVm), G (bVI) and F# (V). For scales, I’d suggest starting with B minor Pentatonic (B-D-E-F#-A) as well as the B Minor scale (B-C#-DE-F#-G-A). For the F# chords you can also use B Harmonic minor (B-C#-D-E-F#-G-A#), emphasising the A# in the process, which leads nicely back to the B minor chord following it. Chord tones are great to target too.
