Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon,
which works really well for this. Check it out.
Guitar Lesson Overview
Here is a nice sounding minor blues progression. I'm providing a few ideas for tools to use when improvising. This lesson is part of a larger Master Class from Master Guitar Academy. To summarize - use A Dorian over the I chord, and over the V chord, use A pentatonic with the added Ab note. The V chord here is E7#9. Enjoy

Good job!! I've been watching your stuff for a few years now, and you have hit on something that I've been searching for for a long time. The gist of this lesson is that with the root (A, in this case), the associated Dorian Scale is a minor 7th(?) with a root of A's 5th scale degree (an E). This is golden! But it makes me curious as to how to apply this principle to all of the modes. - and this is where I get stuck. I've been using a CM7 scale/arpeggio over Am7 root is b3rd!! There MUST be a chart, or something that sort of lays it all out. I'd be thrilled if someone could point me in that direction.
