Turnarounds help define the coming chorus. Example 11 illustrates different ways to deal with the 5 chord or B7 during the turnaround in the key of E. Instead of using A, A#, B, use any of these examples. 11a shows a B6th to B9th. 11b arpeggiates a B augmented chord. 11c is a C9th to a B9th. 11d is just an E7th pentatonic blues lick. 11e is a rhythmic variation of 11d.
