This is something I notice all the great improviser do: add in phrases from other scales to their usual pentatonic shapes. In this scenario, I focus on the intersection between mixolydian and blues, in the context of Steppenwolf's "The Pusher."

Here's some things I think would be good to work on:

  • Know all 5 shapes of your pentatonic (I use CAGED)

  • Know all 5 shapes of your mixolydian

  • Construct phrase that start in one scale, and mutate into the other

  • Pay specific attention to the flat 3rd to major 3rd movement

  • Try practicing in a chord groove + fills kinda way
