    First up we have the Bb dominant 7 chord in

    "position 1" or using the "E Shape".

    The root (red note) is played at the 6th fret.

    Next up is the full dominant 7 arpeggio shape in

    position 1.

    As you'll see on the video I believe it very important

    that you know where each interval in this shape lives.

    Remember that an interval is the distance between two

    notes, in this case the (red) root note.

    Now we have the minor pentatonic scale, the staple of

    any blues improvisation.

    I've included the blues note (in blue) which means this

    scale has some added "grit" compared to the

    dominant 7 arpeggio as both the b3rd and b5th differ

    greatly in sound from the dominant 7 sound.

    2Lastly we have the fuller sounding "Mixolydian

    mode" - The major scale but with a b7.

    On the video I talk about colour tones a lot, so to

    demontate that I've used colour in the diagram so ou

    can see the difference between arpeggio (or chord)

    tones and mixolydian scale tones.

    Moving up the neck now, we have a Bb dominant 7

    chord in "position 3" or using the "C shape". This

    time the (red) root note is played up at the 13th fret.

    Its worth trying to play this shape for an Eb7 (root

    6th fret) and an F7 (root 8th fret) to get comfortable

    seeing this shape in different keys.

    Now I've padded that chord out with the full arpeggio

    which, as you see on the video, is a great source of

    melody as it is.

    Remember that you should be comfortable doing this

    in any key too.

    Here we have the minor pentatonic scale in the same

    place on the neck. It's important to remember that

    while this shape doesn't have the 3rd in, it's still a

    shape that I'll call upon when visulizing a dominant 7

    chord in this position.

    As with position 1, I've used the same colour scheme

    so you can see which notes are "mixolydian scale

    tones" and which are arpeggio notes.

    This position also gives us another part of intervalic

    control as when I play the 2nd in this position I'll

    often bend it up a tone to the 3rd. You can do that

    with any "pink note" in this booklet.

    Our final position is up at the 13th fret with the root

    played using the first finger. This is often the second

    barre chord learnt and is a great way to learn the notes

    on the A string.

    With the added arpeggio tones we're presented with a

    good exercise in finger rolling. I personally encourage

    you to "roll" the 3rd finger from the root to the 3rd on

    the G and B string instead of using the 4th finger.

    It's important that the notes don't ring into each other

    though, so take care.

    This is the tried and trusted minor pentatonic scale

    which I'm sure you all know.

    Remember that we see this in relation to the chord at

    the top, but the b3 gives us a dirtier blues sound when

    soloing.

    76Finally we have the full mixolydian shape in this

    position.

    When you're comforatbale with this try linking all 3

    shapes together, first in Bb, then in Eb and finally in F.
