    That first track is interesting. I wish i could play over it, but don't think i can.

    edit could you please provide a chord chart for the rhythm ? That would be kind of you.

    #1 is (jazz) Blues in Bb.
    #2 is Fm(7). When it hits the changes it's Dbmaj7 to Eb7sus4 to Fm7.
    #3 is a little unconventional ... E5 to F to Dm. E phrygian/dominant (or A harm min).

    Thanks a lot Klasaine. I take the opportunity to tell you that i really appreciate your lessons on Ted Greene.

    You and @Leon Grizzard are a never ending depth of knowledge, and sharing it is a joy to me.

    Simple lite playing in T-Bone lite and Charlie Christian lite styles by favoring the 6th that brings their music to life, not too accurate, but fun.

    Blues For T-Bone

    Thanks to Miles Black for the piano and Eric Marienthal, Mark Douthit, Gary Smulyan and Jim Clark for the horns.

    Someone once mentioned to me that 'Russ keeps good company' - oh yeah he does. Great track. Thanks for sharing, Russ.

    Thank you #1.

    Just a guitar straight to the amp with spring reverb. Some compressor + EQ in DAW.

    Here are some exotic scales I got from a YT metal player for #3, I put it in E for the BT. Hope it gets you that middle eastern vibe.

    The Arabic scale is my choice by far.

    Sorry for the pic quality,

    Thanks. Well, I do have the luxury of having great guys pass through my studio at any given moment. By the way, in case you're interested, Miles is considering putting this track on his upcoming CD.
