Watch the Auxiliary Blues Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook

This next musical idea is an example of how you can create a groovy lick out of the auxiliary blues scale. The sound of it is similar to how a guitarist like Grant Green might approach using this sound. You can hear that with this scale you're able to access the bluesy sound along with the definition of the dominant 7th chord by the presence of the major 3rd. Having the ability to represent both of these kinds of sounds in your playing will help to give your ideas greater variety and breadth.
