By Eric Hufschmid

7th chords are a huge part of classic rock, so knowing how to solo over them is integral to playing in this style. One scale you can use is the Mixolydian scale. It works perfectly over a 7th chord because it features a b7 note just like a 7th chord. Today we’ll introduce you to this concept.

Enjoy the lesson guys!
