Record or have a friend play the above chord progressions in C then – play the single note C Minor Pentatonic Scale in all possible positions (registers) and octaves.

Remember to first play quarter notes then later eight notes.

For understanding notes values follow link then scroll to bottom of page: 2008.08.11: Family Of Chords – Song Writing 101

Remember to refrain from playing at a tempo where each

note is not performed clean and consistent.

Once comfortable gradually increase speed and move to eighth notes



Another commonly used scale for the Blues is the Major Pentatonic Scale.

In the key of C the notes are:

C, D, E, G, A, C.

Learn in all positions and octaves – then apply all techniques in previous blogs to the Major Pentatonic Scale.

The Blues, Minor and Major Pentatonic scales are the three most commonly used scales!

So you must transpose these scales to each position (register) of your instrument, then to all 15 keys.
