The Modern Modal Approach: Minor Blues – Jazz Scales, Exotic Scales – Guitar Lesson

The Minor Blues is a great place to start using a modal approach in a jazz guitar improvisation. In the video I go over 6 different modal ideas and talk about the arpeggios, triad pairs, and target notes that are great for each one!

The 4 bars of tonic minor can be filled in with so many different jazz scales and sound. From standard Melodic minor, Dorian and Blues to more exotic ideas or even superimposing or reharmonizing the chords.
