    And if that were the case, and you'd modulated up a fifth to a Mixolydian mode, I think your b7 would go to 1, for that resolved sound. If you like tension, it's a nice effect to drop to the sixth,...

    I find whenever I have that problem, (which is often if I'm not careful), it helps to find some new exercises, or modify the old ones. Since improv relies largely on physical habit, it helps to...
