One of the first slippery and outside things I like to do is based on something that happens all the time while playing in the standard blues chord progression, but very few musicians act upon what the chords suggest when they play the single lines in a solo.

Both these chords have the same parent scale. Best from Johan Schock.

Johan Schock – February 20, at 2: Before I answer that I want to share one more informational gem! Also, make sure to look at his complete course The 4th position is standard dominant chords such as 9th.

The precise name is A7 with a 5 and a b9, A7 5b9.


What I am talking about happens between the 1st chord of the Blues and the second chord of the Blues namely between the A7 and the D7 chords. Eb Lydian b7 is lbues 4th mode of Bb Melodic Minor. Chris – May 30, at 3: Same as Bb Major scale with a minor frakn.

As I mentioned before, a lot of musicians b,ues an Eb7 right before the D7 up a half step or one fret. Another name for Lydian b7 could be Mixolydian 4. This excerpt is from Part 10 of the 12 part course, a bluew in the course where Frank launches off into more advanced concepts.

I have covered a lot of that material and so now, for those of you who think, well, what other stuff can I do in a Bluesy way that is not necessarily straight up Blues?

Tom S – March 26, at Tambale the bass moves a tritone or b5th away to A, it becomes an A7 altered chord. You may have already noticed that the only thing that changed was the bass note. Hope you and I live when my guitar and keyboard inventions reach the market. Why make such a fuss?

Ricardo Eisenhut – March 26, at 2: The scale is Eb Lydian b7 or A Super Locrian depending on which root is used to visualize the chord change. Notice how the G and C swap roles between the A7 and Eb7.

Notice that the only difference is that the Lydian b7 keeps the A natural, which, after all, is the original root key of this Blues progression, so, it actually sounds more connected and better retaining the A instead franj playing an Ab. Juca Bala – March 28, at 7:
