Website: GuitarTricks.com This is a lesson about advanced improvisation concepts on blues. It shows how you can play 3 different scales on any 12 bar or other blues. The blues pattern I use here has the following chord progression: D / D / D / D G / G / D / D A / G / D / D The scales which can be used are: D minor pentatonic D blues scale D, G and A mixolydian scale. You can play the following scales on the following chords : D : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, D mixolydian scale G : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, G mixolydian scale A : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, A mixolydian scale On the Guitar Tricks site I have a whole bundle of licks which might give you some additional inspiration. Each lick is marked as pentatonic or mixolydian lick in the description. When you transpose a pentatonic lick you have to transpose it to the key of the blues you are playing. When you transpose a mixolydian lick you have to transpose it to the chord you want to improvise.
