While you *can* use the Dorian scale over a 12 bar blues… that’s not the most common way I see it used.
More often than not, I see it used over “bluesy” songs and not “blues” songs.
Deja Voodoo by Kenny Wayne Shepherd is an example, along with songs like Spooky and Oye Como Va – not necessarily blues classics, but great tunes that come up often, nonetheless.
So in this video I’ll show you how to play it, and some ideas for practicing it and using it.
