ok for my last week's guitar lesson, i needed to learn Blue Monk. My teacher now wants me to make a solo to it.. i need help where i should go. Here are the chord changes:


Bb | Eb7 | Bb F7 | Bb Bb7| Eb | Edim7| Bb F7| Bb| F7| f7| Bb | Bb (repeat by using F7)|

Well, I don't want to tell you exactly what key it's in and what scale you should use because I'd feel like I was doing your homework for you.

Try analyzing the chords and come up with a common key. Just from the chords at a glance, it looks like it's going to be minor. Then proceed to use a scale that goes a long with that key and work stuff out. Be creative!

Use the notes of your Concert Bb Major scale, but flat the 3rd, and the 7th. That will make it a Bb Dorian scale.

Or, for more simplicity, use 1, 3b, 4, 5b, 5, 7b, 8. as a scale. That's the blues scale.

during the diminished chord, use it as a chance to build your solo up, with a big string bend or something. there's no such thing as a diminished 7th scale. just try messing around and come up with a few licks you like, then put them together. like the dude above said, i don't want to tell you what to do, the reason your teacher gave you that is to make you think and become a better player.
