help with a jazz song

  1. Ok, i'm doing a song in jazz band called touching all the basses, and it's in the key of Bb, and what could i do to vamp up my solos? (i have three of them) One is in a funky swing, another in a triplet blues, and another in free time at the end of a song, are there any scales that could help me with this?
     
  2. Bb :)

    3 solos in the same song? 3 solos in Bb (major?) :confused:

    Presumably, with the blues one, the Bb blues scale is gonna be what you're looking for - Bb Db Eb E F Ab.

    But for the other two solos... some chords might come in handy for recommending scales to use!!

    Go wild, BbMaj pentatonic ;)

    ...or sod all that scale nonsense and just groove on root + 5th for 16 bars.
    It'd certainly be different! :D
     
  7. well, it isn't a jazz song, but it's a SONG done by the jazz band, and moley, the chord changes are Bb-Eb-F
