Hey David,

I need your help on something smile.gif

I've been playing The minor natural scale for my solo's like forever, but I want something new.
I learned a few boxes of the blues scale because I'm rather fond of blues, especially the power stuff and SRV.
Well, your fast pentatonic licks lesson came exactly on the right time, BUT......
can you use the blues scale exactly the same as you would use the minor pentatonic? Or do the other musicians have to play some kind of blues-chords?
Thanks a lot in advance, Great lesson BTW.

Warm regards,
Lester

I say something since I love blues and srv. The minor pentatonic/blues scale is a difference of ONE note. The minor pentatonic in A goes like

E-5-8 The BLUES scale has an added Blue note and goes like this :UNDER HERE
B-5-8
G-5-7
D-5-7
A-5-7
E-5-8

E-5-8
B-5-8
G-5-7-8
D-5-7
A-5-6-7
E-5-8

Don't just play it. Feel it!

Good answer Jesse.
So yes, you can use the minor pentatonic and minor blues scale the same way.
The "blue" note is a passing note. It just adds a little chromatic touch to your minor pentatonic scale.

I recommend that you start working with the Dorian and Mixolydian mode now. They should help you expand and both of these modes work well blended with the pentatonic scales. :-)
