EXAMPLE8 v-iv blues Changes: robben Ford
in this example the BB King ‘blues box’ (r-2-4-5-6) is used to generate the sound of the v chord. Over the iv chord, the licks return to the minor Pentatonic but with t5he 6th interval (F#) replacing the minor 7th of the scale. This perfectly describes the iv chord harmony because the F# is the 3rd of d7. robben
(r-b3-4-5-6) favours this dorian Pentatonic quite a lot as it’s minor with the major 6th adding sweetness.
