Bb Jazz Blues Soloing
Soloing over a jazz blues is a challenging and also rewarding goal for any guitarist. To navigate a progression like this means to be able to outline seventh, minor, and diminished chords with scales and arpeggios with jazz and blues phrasing. Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, and Pat Metheny are all great players that are amazing in this style. This idea with this exercise is to give you a mix of licks and phrases that can help you build your own vocabulary for soloing on the guitar.
These licks use a mix major and minor pentatonic scales, the mixolydian scale, as well as targeted chord tones, tensions, and arpeggios. The Bb mixolydian scale is Bb C D Eb F G Ab Bb. The Bb major pentatonic scale is Bb C D F G Bb. The Bb minor pentatonic scale is Bb Db Eb F Ab Bb. These are three very useful scales to learn when it comes to Jazz Blues Soloing.
