In this lesson we look at the Blues Scale (or Minor Blues Scale). This is a simple variation on the Minor Pentatonic from the previous lesson and is VERY common in all styles of pop, jazz and blues music.

thanks for your great lessons. Using your lessons helped me to improve a lot.
And now I’ve got a question about this Blues Scale.
In the past I found some kind of extension to this scale and I wonder why this didn’t show up in your lessons.
C – Blues Scale:
G —-3 —- 5
D —-3 —- 4 —- 5
A —-3 —- 6
G – Blues Scale?
G —- 3 —- 5 —- 6
D —- 3 —- 5
A —- 3 —- 4 —- 5
E —- 3 —- 6
It feels right while playing it, but never showed up somewhere else. Any ideas where this comes from and can it used in a blues song? Or isn’t it a blues scale anymore?
Very useful 👍🇺🇸
Awesome lesson. It confused me a bit that the sheet music for the riff didn’t match what we actually played but it was an easy adjustment.
great lesson like that blues note
