Watch the Mixolydian-Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Annie Raines from Blues Harmonica Blueprint
This is a very simple blues scale with a scary name: Mixolydian Pentatonic. The scale degrees are 1, 3, 4, 5, flat 7th. When it really starts to sound like a blues scale is when we play it going back down, starting on 6 blow, then 5 draw, 4 draw, 4 blow, 3 draw, and we’ll land on the 3 blow. Most phrases in blues songs resolve down, not up.
