The Blues scale should work fine. Its not the only one, but it tends to sound good over major 7th chords.

mixolydian (sp?) is the mode you're looking for (you can throw in the b5 from the blues hexatonic as well)


to zorched: you mean 7th chords, no major 7th chords

you're saying there are no major 7th chords? I'm looking at them on my wall right now. Also look here:

Unless he was referring to a dominant 7th which (i believe) are nether major nor minor. Even then the blues scale fits perfectly as the progression A7 D7 E7 is pretty much the first blues progression you learn when starting out.

No you muppet:

A major 7th chord is 1 3 5 7 and denoted maj7 (e.g. Amaj7) whilst a 7th chord (as he was reffering to) is 1 3 5 b7, denoted with just a 7 (e.g. A7)

I never said not to use the blues scale. The mixolydian mode with the b5 added has all the notes of the blues scale, and then more.
