Gib­son eS-330T Gui­tar We start with a slow acous­tic gui­tar-in­fused jam in A mi­nor. A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (A-C-D-E-G) works through­out the track. In terms of seven-note scales, I’d use A Nat­u­ral mi­nor (A-B-C-D-E-F-G) for the ‘verse’ sec­tions and A Do­rian mode (A-B-C-D-E-F#-G) for the ‘cho­rus’ sec­tions (where the chord se­quence goes: C-D-Am). Here we have a fun, acid-jazz style funk track. Har­mon­i­cally speak­ing there are two sec­tions. The main sec­tion is based on an E7#9 (aka the ‘Hen­drix’ chord) and the B sec­tion is an A9 (IV9). E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (E-G-A-B-D) works great through­out. To get more jazzy colours, use the E Half-whole tone scale (E-F-G-G#-A#-B-C#-D) on E7#9 and A Mixoly­dian mode (A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G) on A9. Es­sen­tially, this is a sim­ple mi­nor blues pro­gres­sion, but with a reg­gae feel to it. Use A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale (A-C-D-E-G), A mi­nor Blues (A-C-D-D#-E-G) or A Nat­u­ral mi­nor; (A-B-C-D-E-F-G). Know­ing the 7th arpeg­gios will also come in handy. They are: Am7 (A-C-E-G); Dm7 (D-F-A-C) and Em7 (E-G-B-D). Here’s a fun odd-me­tre curve­ball – a groovy G mi­nor blues in 3/4. For

(G-A-BbC-D-E-F) solo­ing, G Do­rian mode works through­out. As

(G-Bb-D-F), 7th arpeg­gios: Gm7 C7 (C-E-G-Bb)

and Dm7 (D-F-A-C).
