Watch the Pentatonic & Blues Scales online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten from Rock Sauce For Lead Guitar
I don't want to get into a comprehensive study of all scales in this course. I just want to make sure you know the very basic and most used scales of rock and pop music soloing. Pentatonic scales are five note scales. In the fingering in the chart provided, there are only two notes per string, so they are the easiest scales to memorize. To turn them into blues scales, you just add one note per octave, which is the flatted 5th.
