Hi guys,

I've been having fun with this minor jazz blues jam track, so thought I'd share the backing track on here for you guys to enjoy as well!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImLc03Lu-hc

Chord progression:


II: Am7 I Am7 I Am7 I Am7 I
I Dm7 I Dm7 I Am7 I Am7 I
I F7 I E7 I Am7 I Bm7b5 E7 :II

On the track, you will hear extensions of these chords - as is common in jazz of course Smile


Scale suggestions:


A minor pentatonic scale - A C D E G (A)

A minor blues scale - A C D D# E G (A)

A minor scale - A B C D E F G (A)


F7 chords :

F Lydian Dominant - F G A B C D Eb (F)

E7 chords:

A harmonic minor scale - A B C D E F G# (A)

Or

Treat it as an altered chord and use the altered scale:

E altered scale - E F G Ab Bb C D (E)

The altered scale is the mode which starts on the 7th step of the melodic minor scale, so in other words - the notes of E altered scale are the same as those of F melodic minor scale Smile


Arpeggios:


Am7 - A C E G

Dm7 - D F A C

F7 - F A C Eb

E7 - E G# B D

Bm7b5 - B D F A


Hope that helps.... happy jamming!
