➊ G Mi­nor Blues

We start with this fairly slow and easy-to-ap­proach blues in G mi­nor.

Bb- Use G Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G- CD-F) and the G Mi­nor scale Bb- Eb- (G-A- C-D- F) as a start­ing point and then add a tasty F# lead­ing note from G Har­monic Bb- Eb- Mi­nor (G-A- C-D- F#) for the dom­i­nant (D7) chords.

➋ Am Groove Blues

Here we have a fun groove-based blues in A mi­nor. A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (A-C-D-E-G) as well as A Mi­nor scale (A-B-C-D-E-F-G) will work great through­out the track. I also rec­om­mend play­ing around with the 7th arpeg­gios: Am7 (A-C-E-G), Dm7 (D-F-A-C) and Em7 (E-G-B-D).

➌ Bb Jazz Blues

Here’s a stan­dard 12-bar jazz-blues Bb in the com­mon jazz key of (be­cause horns are based in this key Bb and it’s best for them). Com­bine Bb- Ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic ( C-D-F-G) Bb Bb-Db-Eb­with Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic ( Ab) F- and then aim for the arpeg­gios next. Some parts have comp­ing, but the ma­jor­ity of the track leaves lots of space for you to ex­per­i­ment with chords, solo­ing and any com­bi­na­tion thereof.

➍ Acid Jazz Groove Jam (Am)

This one works great with A Do­rian mode (A-B-C-D-E-F#-G) and A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (A-C-D-E-G). There are two sec­tions, one based on an Am chord and one based on a D9 chord. Arpeg­gios: Am (A-C-E ) and D9 (D-F#-A-C-E). As al­ways, happy jam­ming!
