I’m going to take you through:•How a scale is made up•How the Minor Pentatonic Scale is constructed and how to play it in any key•What we need to do to make our Minor Pentatonic into a Blues Scale•How to play the Blues Scale in any key•How to find the Major Pentatonic Scale, and when to play it to give your blues a little varietyI know that very few of us are into dry and dusty text books and theory, so I have kept this simple and, I hope, very easy to follow.My goal is to have you playing in minutes and with a little application you can sound pretty good in just a few hours.This is just a quick dash through the basics but I hope, no matter what level you are at, you’ll find it helpful to have it laid out simply before you and I hope it encourages you to take a deeper look into blues and all the exciting possibilities it holds.Peter Jones
