Tempo = 100 BPM

Chord progression:

II: Am I Am I Am I A7 I
I Dm I Dm I Am I Am I
I F7 I E7 I Am I Bm7b5 E7 :II

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

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)

A dorian mode - 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)


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

E altered scale - E F G G# 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 :)


Am - A C E

A7 - A C# E G

Dm - D F A

F7 - F A C Eb

E7 - E G# B D

Bm7b5 - B D F A
