Just really trying to get my blues scales "under my fingers" at the mo and working on getting some nice patterns down in different keys.

One I've been working on alot is found in Madness's One Step Beyond. I call it the "Tumble Down"
In D Blues -- CAG# AG#G G#GF GFD | FDC DCA CAG AGA | E---(orD)|
Played in 16th note triplets, so ending in the 3rd bar with a long note

I have been working on a "Scramble Up" which might be
In D Blues -- FGG# GG#A G#AC ACD | CDF DFG FGG# GAG | D---

Another one I found was here

This is a bit of a case of sharing then asking.

Does anyone know any more nice patterns like this that can be practiced in all keys or where to find a nice selection on the web. I know I could try and make some up, but if other people have had some good results with some patterns I would love to see them.
Cheers,
Alan

Abersold has some good books. I have these:




You can see more info at Jazzwise and Musicroom

Also, try listening to solos from the 'greats' and transcribe a few licks 'straight from the horses mouth'.
