Hey guys, I have a question about some theory. There’s a song called Cissy Strut by The Meters. The main lick is played in C Minor pentatonic, but the chords behind it are A# major and F major. How are they able to play a C Minor pentatonic over a IV to I chord progression that’s in F major? In the key of F, the C is the perfect fifth, making it Mixolydian (a major sound), not any type of minor sound. Does anyone have any insight on this?
