  • I welcome everyone to my first blues lesson!
    This is a simple tradtitional slow blues in which we will use the A pentatonic scale in three different positions, combined with the blues scale. A perfect lesson for absolute beginners. With simple practices like this we can learn the scales easily and we’ll be able to improvise.

    In the first part we can hear an 8-bar blues pattern that consists of the following:

    A5 A5 D5 A5 E5 D5 A5 E7/9#

    In the first four bars of the solo we will use the blues pentatonic scale in the fifth position.

    In the 5. and 6. bars we will use the same scale, but in two other positions and we will close the solo in the fifth position again.

    This lesson contains:




    -rhythm pattern

    Good practicing
