Scales covered in this eBook

The pentatonic scales

Pentatonic scales are the most common scales used in blues, pop, rock, funk, soul and many other music styles. They are generally the first scales that a guitar student learns because it is easy to remember, easy to play and it sounds very good.

As its name implies, it is made up of five notes ("Penta" means "five and tonic means "notes"). There are two pentatonic scales : major and minor.

The minor pentatonic scale

In this eBook we will focus first on the minor pentatonic scale to get that blues sound specific to soul jazz music. Theoretically minor pentatonic scales must be played over minor chords but you can play them over dominant 7th chords (which are major chords). Mixing major and minor tonality, the clash of the minor and major thirds, it is that blues thing.

The major pentatonic scale

Adding extra notes to the minor pentatonic scale is a common thing . We can add three notes of the major pentatonic scale to the minor pentatonic scale : the major second (ninth), the major third and the major sixth (thirteenth).

The minor blues scale

The minor blues scale is an hexatonic scale (it is made up of six notes), it contains the same notes as the minor pentatonic scale, including a passing tone (b5) also called "blue note". It is a good alternative to the minor pentatonic scale.
