➊ Blues Bal­lad (E)

Slow Blues with a BB King in­spired feel-good vibe to it. You can try mix­ing the E Ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic scale (E-F#-G#-B-C#) with E Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (E-G-A-B-D) for a great

b5 (Bb) bluesy sound, adding the to the mix as well.

➋ Jazzy Funk Jam (Cm)

The ba­sic chord pro­gres­sion here is Cm-F, but when prac­tis­ing your rhythm play­ing I rec­om­mend try­ing out chords like Cm7/Cm9/Cm11 and F7/F9/F13. Start with C Mi­nor

(C-Eb-F-G-B b) Pen­ta­tonic scale for your funky riff­ing and solo­ing and then move on to C Do­rian mode (C-D-Eb-F-G-A-Bb).

➌ Slow II-V-I Jazz Prac­tice (C)

This clas­sic jazz pro­gres­sion goes Dm7 (2), G7 (5), CMaj7 (1). You can es­sen­tially use C Ma­jor scale (C-D-E-F-G-A-B) through­out, but the jazzy colours don’t come out till you start chas­ing the chord tones – Dm7 (D-F-A-C), G7 (G-B-D-F) and CMaj7 (C-E-G-B) and adding chro­matic ideas as well, adding real so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

➍ G Do­rian Groove Jam

Gm-Bb-C, Here, the chords are which means G Do­rian mode (G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F) will work per­fectly. You can also sim­ply use G (G-Bb-C-D-F) Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic or get bluesy with the G Mi­nor Blues (G-Bb-C-C#-D-F). scale
