I use alot of Pat Martino's Linear expressions stuff (way too much - slowly breaking the habit of sixteenth note wanking !)

play in G maj country pent w/some mixolydian or mixo #4 stuff

over the next 2 chords:
G min blues pent or
Bb mix/ mix #4

mix #4 is a mixolydian w/the #4 REPLACING the sus4

it is really the 4th mode of a melodic minor

So G mix#4 over the first chord is really D mel min

Bb mix #4 is really F mel min over the next 2 chords


You could also think of it as 2 mel min a minor third apart

4 beats of D mel min then 4 bets of F mel min

You could also look at those last 2 of the 3 chords as a IImi-V7 (Fmi7-Bb7)

or you could look at the first chord, instead of being 4 beats of G7, make it 2 beats of Dmi7 and 2 beats of G7;

And then 2 beats of Fmi7 2 beats of Bb7

So you would have this:

||: Dmi7 G7 | Fmi7 Bb7 Neutral|

it is basically II-V's in minor 3rds

When you start trying to record, it seems alot longer than when listening or just jammin' around
