  • Playing a minor pentatonic over a dominant 7 chord is a great way to add a bluesy feel to an improvisation. The tension heard when playing a minor third over the major third of the track is what makes blues so interesting.

    In the following lesson, I'll share with you a few tricks to blend these two scales together and create a smooth improvisation.

    The track is in A7. Make sure you are comfortable with the different pentatonic boxes before you start using the examples in your own leads.
    Enjoy!
