Mixolydian Mode Blues Lick

Here's a blues guitar lick using the D# Mixolydian Mode. This scale has a flat seventh which works well over dominant seventh chords and has a much bluesier, sad feel than the major seventh in the ionian mode or standard major scale.

I've played the lick over the backing track with a couple of variations on phrasing and speed. Hope you like it. Any questions, comments let me know. Cheers.
