Hi GMC! In this Exotic Scale lesson we will explore the Blues Modified scale. This is the third scale that of the series. This scale is like a minor pentatonic with the 2nd and a passing tone between the V and the VII.
This lesson will show you a possible chord progression made of the chords that could be taken from this scale. Also you will have the modes played once by me and the second time by the backing so you can play over the backing. This two approximations, the modes played over an octave and the chords, will get you familiar with this scale.
I hope you enjoy the lesson!
