Blues scale Guitar Conspiracy lesson

Learn how to play the Blues scale!

The Blues scale is the second most common scale guitar players use when they improvise.

To build it, all you do is add the b5 to the Minor Pentatonic.

If you have been calling out intervals as you practiced your Minor Pentatonic you will know where all your 4ths and 5ths are in each shape. Simply add the b5 in between!

It’s all about the intervals!

Knowing where the intervals are within the scale is the key to being able to just add a note like this to the shapes.

Throughout the S-E P R, different notes will be added to the pentatonic scales so make sure you got these intervals nailed as the frame work.

In order to fully understand a shape and its intervals you need to take a riff or a lick and move it to a different shape.

The more you do this, the better you’ll understand the guitar neck.

Learn more in the 2 chord loops, which easily could have a blues scale instead of a pentatonic over any minor chord!
