This jam track features the ii & V chords from the Key of A. Any scale patterns from the Key of A can be used to improvise over this progression. On pg. 57 of my "Guitar Visualizations" Playbook, I have diagrammed out the "5" positions of the Key of A. Click here to view or download the Key of A-Key of F#m page.
The B minor pentatonic scale is another choice as an improvising scale. You will notice that if you look at the 7th position scale from the Key of A and you take out the C# & G# notes you end up with a B minor pentatonic scale. On pg. 62 of my "Guitar Visualizations" Playbook, I have diagrammed out the "5" positions of the Bm pentatonic-B blues scale. Click here to view or download the B minor pentatonic-B blues scale page.
I have recorded "4" You Tube videos that feature various improvising strategies for this progression. The links to the videos can be found here - Bm7/E9 Jam Videos.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas,
but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough. - Eugéne Delacroix
