Watch the Mixing Major and Minor online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Guitar Survival Guide - Lead
The real good stuff starts to happen when we mix the major and minor blues scales. This is what Jimi, Eric, Jeff, Peter, BB, Buddy, Albert, Albert, Freddie, and everyone who I left out does! My personal favorites are the British blues guys like Clapton and Peter Green. These two players in particular melded what the classic American blues players were doing into a new approach of the blues. A classic example of this mixture of the major and minor blues scales is Clapton's solo on Crossroads. This solo still kills me, it is perfection.
