Chicago Blues Jam (C#)

Let’s start with a fun Blues shuf­fle with a Chicago style turn­around. C# is not the most com­mon of keys of course, but re­mem­ber it’s the blues, so you can get great vibes from sim­ply us­ing the C# Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (C#-E-F#-G#-B), which con­tains the same notes as E Ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic. Next up, try blend­ing in some C# Ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic (C#-D#-E#-F#-G#-A#).

F Mixoly­dian Shuf­fle Groover

Here’s a sim­ple two-chord vamp for you guys to have fun with while ex­plor­ing your F Mixoly­dian mode (F-G-A-Bb-C-D-Eb).

Try mix­ing in the oc­ca­sional bluesy colour, by way of F

(F-Ab-Bb-C-Eb) Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic and

(F-Ab-Bb-B-C-Eb). F Mi­nor Blues scale

A Mi­nor Jazz Jam

The ba­sic pro­gres­sion here is Am7-Am7-F7-E7, which is a very com­mon Mi­nor turn­around in jazz. Use A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale (A-C-D-E-G) and A Mi­nor Blues scale (A-C-D-D#-E-G), ad­ding A Har­monic Mi­nor (A-B-C-D-E-F-G#) over the E7 chords. The arpeg­gios

(F-A-C-Eb) are Am7 (A-C-E-G), F7 and E7 (E-G#-B-D).

Bluesy 2-Chord Vamp (C)

Here we have a sim­ple bluesy vamp in the key of C. You can blues it up

(C-Eb-Fwith C Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic G-B-), or switch be­tween C

(C-D-E-F-G-A-Bb) Mixoly­dian mode for the first chord (C) and C Do­rian

(C-D-Eb-F-G-A-Bb) mode for the sec­ond chord (F7). Note that the only note change here is the B be­com­ing a Bb.
