How to Play a Blues Scale

23 04 2010

This is a great (and easy-to-follow) video showing you a simple blues scale. The instructor uses numbers to keep track of which fingers to use, and then goes through it again by calling out the actual fret numbers.

He also shows you a few ways to improvise while still maintaining the ability to pull things back to the “root” note (the main note of a scale: for example, an A scale’s root note is –you guessed it– A.).

Let me know if this video is helpful to you, I’m learning by example about how to teach this kind of stuff   🙂
