Welcome to video six of the Blues Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson we are going to shift our focus to blues lead guitar by learning a shape for the blues scale. Leaning the blues scale is great because you can jump right in and solo over a jam track or jam with you friends.
In the next lesson we’re going to talk about how the blues scale is actually made. There is some theory involved here but don’t worry, we will make it easy for you. So work through this lesson and then continue on with the Blues Guitar Quick-Start series to learn more.
