This week we are working on the solo for "Ain't Nobody's Business" and it is a fun tune. It's form is over an 8 bar progression that is a blues with a few more chords. I personally love playing the 8 bar type of blues because it is totally blues in feeling but offers the opportunity to play over a few more chords and opens up different way to approach blues playing. I show you a solo but also some variations of ways to approach it with BB King style single string lines and also double stops to show another style. The diminished chord here can be dealt with a few different ways. After the four chord is the E diminished which you can follow with a blues scale or just play blues riffs with bent notes that work over the diminished chord without sounding like you are playing a diminished scale. Either are good ways to approach it and it is totally what fits your on feeling that makes your own personal interpretation. You should have lots of fun with this and it's a true blues classic dating back to Bessie Smith.
