For the Mixolydian/Dorian study, we'll make it a little more rock-like, as this is a very common rock-type flavor. I really do hate to label stuff but so is the business of music theory. It is good to catergorize these sounds in an intellectual way so you have a list of options to explore. Eventually, these thoughts give way to you finding your own sound because the scales are internalized and are just a part of how you express yourself.

When I play a blues solo, I think it is influenced by many styles of music: blues, rock, country, jazz, latin, funk, etc so these labels are just that, labels.
