Guitar Lesson: Major & Minor Pentatonics in Blues Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question: Q: Can you explain how to use different scales in Blues progressions. I was on a guitar discussion forum where they were posting about playing major and minor pentatonic and even modes on blues progressions. But, I dont quite understand is how this works. I was taught that on blues progressions you are supposed to use the blues scale. I dont really grasp the modes yet, but my pentatonics are pretty good. Im curious about what other blues sounds I might be missing! I love blues guitar. - Charlotte, Wales UK.
