Fire­glo and Jet­glo fin­ishes. Here we have a ba­sic 12-bar blues pro­gres­sion in the key of C. Clearly C mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic will work great

Eb- Bb), (C- F-G- but you can, of course, also treat each chord as a dom­i­nant 7th and use Mixoly­dian mode (C, F and G Mixoly­dian re­spec­tively for the I, IV and V chord of the blues pro­gres­sion). Al­ter­na­tively, try mix­ing in key chord tones from the arpeg­gios: C7

Bb), Eb) (C-E-G- F7 (F-A-C- and G7 (G-B-D-F). This will add in­stant so­phis­ti­ca­tion to your lines. The pro­gres­sion here is Am-D9F­maj7-E7. You can use a va­ri­ety of modes, but A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale is still great (A-C-D-E-G). Do­rian mode (A-B-C-D-E-F#-G) works per­fectly over the Am and D9 chords, whereas you’d want to switch to A Ae­o­lian – ie the nat­u­ral mi­nor scale – for the Fmaj7 (A-B-C-D-E-F-G). A Har­monic mi­nor is a great way of ne­go­ti­at­ing the E7 chord (A-B-C-D-E-F-G#). Here’s a Latin-sound­ing track that is per­fect for div­ing into the third of the Ma­jor scale modes: Phry­gian. (C# Phry­gian con­sists of C#-D-E-F#-G#-A-B). C# mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (C#-E-F#-G#-B) and C# Blues scale (C#-E-F#-G-G#-B) are also great op­tions. Try play­ing around with spell­ing out a C# mi­nor arpeg­gio (C#-E-G#) and a D ma­jor arpeg­gio (D-F#-A) for max­i­mum Phry­gian ef­fect. This chal­leng­ing 7/8 groove track shifts be­tween E Mi­nor and G Mi­nor. The E mi­nor pro­gres­sion is Em7 to A7, so E Do­rian mode (E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D) is a top scale op­tion, as well as E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (E-G-A-B-D). The G mi­nor pro­gres­sion is also of a Do­rian na­ture, with the chords
