Soloing Over 7th Chords & the Blues

Seventh chords are some of the most common types of chords but can be tricky to solo over at times. 

Seventh chords have three main tones – the root, the major 3rd, & the flatted 7th.

Here’s the problem: If you want to solo using pentatonic scales then neither the major or minor pentatonic scales work perfectly.

The major pentatonic scale doesn’t include the b7.

And the minor pentatonic scale doesn’t include the major 3rd - although it does include the bluesy sounding minor 3rd.

So, it’s helpful to find other ways to approach this common chord.
