    Ideal for beginners.... HAPPY JAMMING :shred:

    Chord progression:

    II: Am7 I Am7 I Am7 I Am7 I
    I Dm7 I Dm7 I Am7 I Am7 I
    I F7 I E7 I Am7 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)

    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 Ab 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 :)


    Am7 - A C E G

    Dm7 - D F A C

    F7 - F A C Eb

    E7 - E G# B D

    Bm7b5 - B D F A

    Tempo = 65 BPM.
