This is a blues in a “jump” style. As with Slinky we can use just one key scale, e.g the minor pentatonic or minor blues scale which is the same but with an added passing note.

Again, if you feel like it you can add major 3rds to add some variety. These can work very well, but you must be careful where you use them so to begin with just use the minor scales.

On alto:
