Watch the The Blues-Rock Scale online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from Jump Start Rock Guitar
The first practical scale that most guitar players learn is the minor pentatonic scale. This scale is used in tons of blues and rock songs, for solos and improvising, as well as melodies. This is a 5 note scale, that is what make it sound unique. Practice this until you can do it in your sleep!!! You WILL use this over and over again so having it down really well will help you time and again!
