Chapter 7: Blues Soloing with the Mixolydian Mode

This chapter opens up with cool soloing examples over a medium-tempo shuffle blues in E, inspired by songs like “Pride & Joy” by Stevie Ray Vaughan, demonstrating many of the harmonic devices covered in previous chapters and the use of playing techniques such as hybrid picking, pull-offs, hammer-ons, string bending, vibrato, double-stops and finger slides, reminiscent of the playing styles of Lightnin’ Hopkins and Freddie King. This is followed by a slow blues solo inspired by the Allman Brothers Band’s version of the T. Bone Walker song “Stomy Monday,” demonstrating how to use the Mixolydian mode as the basis for blues licks in the  key of G, in conjunction with the G blues scale to create what is known as the G hybrid-dominant scale.
