Blues Soloing Secrets – Unlocking The Pentatonic Scale
Guitar Lesson Brett Papa http://www.papastache.com/new_blues.html
Pentatonic Scale as its name suggests consists of five sounds within an octave. It is the simplest and most commonly used, and also the most universal scale, matching almost any harmony. It is a substitute for many scales and ranges.
The blues scale is pentatonic enriched with a Tritton, i.e. an increased quart (primate, third, quart, Tritton, fifth, small seventh). You can also call it hexonic, because it already consists of six sounds. However, let us stay with the popular name – “blues scale”.
Like pentatonic, the blues scale can be in the form of a major. The principle is the same (the third is lower on the bar). So its ingredients will be the prime, the second great, the third, the great third, the fifth and the great six.
The use of pentatonic and blues scale is very wide in almost every genre of music.
