Essential Blues Guitar Lessons [1 of 27] Electric Blues For Intermediates

Let’s get started with the main riff, and the concept of the blues scale. First up, the blues scale. This is essentially the minor pentatonic with an additional flattened 5th note. It therefore creates a 6 note scale that looks like this:

root, b3rd, 4th, b5th, 5th, b7th

When you apply this to the fretboard, and in the key of G, we can build our G blues scale. This can be played all over the neck, but to start with, lets play it from the first position, down on the 3rd fret.
