Hey guys
I have an audition for my school's Jazz Band tomorrow, and I was wondering what scales I could use to solo over this:
||A7------|D7---Dm7|A7------|A7------
|D7------|D7--Dm7-|A7------|A7------
|E9------|Dm7-----|A7------|A7------

If that didnt come out correctly, it basically goes:
A7-D7-A7-A7-D7-D7-A7-A7-E9-Dm7-A7-A7

I tried the A blues, but Im gonna need more.
Any ideas?

try to keep a jazzy feel

Bend a lot and make a face like you're having an orgasm each time.


yess the face is very important

use the root, 5th, 7th, and octave of the chords being played and try using chromatics b/t chords

If you actually want to sound jazzy, don't bend (but, keep the guitar face)...Bm7 scales over the A7, and make sure to include that m6 when you're over the Dm...annnd...melodic minor of the m2 over the A7 if you really want to feel adventurous...maybe even a whole tone scale over the E9.

If you play the blues scale never forgot to plug major 3rd notes and sixth they sound awesome!(think I cant quit you babe of led zep) And play the blue note to (which is b5)
Sorryz for me bad engrish.

Don't get stuck playing a box...nobody likes that. Let it flow with some slides and bends.
#10
pley a few licks that involve a pigs scrotum....no just kiddin

just flow...thats all i can say...feel it out and dont over kill it...just fill in where necessary and do some muting when necessary and hammer them strings when you need the RAWER!

I'd just go for A Blues for the audition - if you're confident throw in some out-of-scale chord tones as well.

No you're not.

What's important is HOW you use the notes of the scale, not the scale itself. Just pay attention to the music and follow the chords.

In a jazz setting, follow the chords, and throw in some passing tones so it's more fluid.
