PRINCIPLE 22 - BLUES SCALE SHAPES

The blues scale is a Minor Pentatonic scale with and added b5th interval, it’s that simple. Adding the b5 interval gives us a chromatic sequence of notes, 4th,b5th and 5th.

The b5th is not a chord tone, sweet note resolution so don’t land there and hope for the best...if you do, smile a lot!!!
