Watch the Flat Nine & Bluesy online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Jazz Guitar Greatest Hits - Vol. 4
Flat Nine & Bluesy is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Vignola and is sourced from Essentials: Jazz Standard Soloing
In this essential solo, we use the chord changes similar to those of the great Kenny Dorham classic, "Blue Bossa". It's a 16-measure song that is played 2 times through in the key of C minor. Using the flat nine over the 5 chord in a minor key is very effective, and using the pentatonic blues in a minor key works extremely well too.
