Blues Lead Guitar #9 - The Blues Scale

The Justinguitar.com Blues Guitar Lessons

Exploring the spice of the blue note.

This lesson should give you some more ideas for using the Blue Note.

I'm not giving you licks for these - I want you to explore the ideas yourself. Try out each trick and incorporate them into your improvisations.

Below are some neck diagrams showing you where the blue notes are found. Play around with this idea and see what you can come up with!

The "Blue Note" is shown in red. Use whatever finger is most comfortable! We will cover the other positions later!
