Blues Scales
The Blues Scales we are currently working on are played as follows:

  1. Learn the Major scale
  2. Play the notes from the major scale (altered) as follows:
  • 1 - b3 - 4 - b5 - 5 - b7 - 8 - 9
  • Eg: in Bb Concert...Bb - Db - Eb - E (Fb) - F - Ab - Bb - C
*Work on transposing this formula into ALL keys!

Try playing along with the track below...you can also use the pentatonic scale.  Have fun!
