Now it’s time to try improvising some of your own solos using the minor pentatonic scale and the dominant 7 arpeggios we've looked at.

And here’s a little bonus: To illustrate my earlier point, this is the second solo played over the first chord progression. I think you'll agree when you get to measure eight it doesn't sound good at all!

I hope you've got your head around the difference between these two progressions. In our next lesson we'll look into the difference between the Dorian and Aeolian modes and how we can use both in our blues playing. Until then, listen to a few more minor blues songs and see if you can work out which of these minor progressions they incorporate.
