The Dominant Pentatonic
Dominant pentatonic is a widely used scale to add some different flavour to the minor pentatonic.Among the possibilities, it can be used, of course, in a bluesy context but also over specific chords. For example, you can use the C dominant pentatonic on a blues in G, or on either over a C7 or a Gm7 chord. Here five basic shapes and four very interesting 2-3 Notes-Per-Strings symmetric shapes.

There's a lot of harmonic leeway over Dominant 7/mixolydian harmony; from the woozy West Side blues of Magic Sam to the mellow Memphis rock-a-billy of Scotty Moore to the snarly proto-metal of Link Wray.
Major Triad and Inversions on Two Strings
Although it is not so common to learn arpeggios of triads on two strings, by combining these building blocks we can obtain almost any more complex shape.
Here we have arpeggios with 1-2 Notes-Per-Strings (Red) and 2-1 NPS (Blue) on five string sets.

Seven shapes, 3 Notes-Per-String. Each Shape... all 7 Modes! 😉
Each shape, works for all seven modes. Every mode has its own degrees map.
You can hear the right sound of each mode by playing these shapes over a bass pedal with the same root of the mode’s root. Different shapes will sound identical as they contain the same notes.
In addition you can ear the characteristic sound of each mode by placing its tensions on the strong beats of the measure so they are not perceived as passing tones and loose their harmonic value.

No b5? b7?

Matteo Mancuso killer lick on the Diminished Scale
This video shows young iper-talended guitarist Matteo Mancuso on his introductory lick on "The Chiken". Matteo combines a typical 4th’s pattern on the diminished h/w scale with some arpeggios built with the notes of the scale. The result, empowered by Matteo’s astonishing natural technicque and musical feeling, is insane!

It is not that uncommon, among jazz musicians, to use three-note chords that can work as more complex chords structures.
Three-notes chords often are more handy and essential and, if we have the ability to obtain quickly their inversions, we can obtain a lot of voicings that can work as seventh chords.
In the picture below we have the notes C D Ab that can work as: Amin (maj7), Fm6, E7 (b13), Bb7 (9).
Try yourself the sound ! 😉
