To further depart from the standard blues we'll use an E7#9 as a V of VI to approach the next chord, which is Ab13. Then we use that Ab13 as a V of II to approach the D7#9. We use that D7#9 as a V of V to approach the Gb13. And that gets us to our V chord!

Now we are ready for a pedal point turnaround that will lead to a G augmented chord to use as our final V chord before we start the whole 16 bar form over again!

Again, take your time with these chords if you haven't seen them before! Make sure you can play them cleanly and smoothly.

Finally, we'll learn a variation on our jazzy ending that uses licks to outline the chords instead of playing the chords themselves. Also, the second time through the form we will play the pedal point walkup line an octave higher. Finally, we arpeggiate the G augmented chord descending instead of ascending.
