Blues Scale Lick 1 - Robert Renman
Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is a nice little blues guitar lick, using just the blues scale. The example is played in the key of A. I briefly used the backing track called "wreck me baby" to play this lick over as well.

One thing I am trying convey here is that I am taking a scale, and I use it to create a musical phrase. It sounds so much better than just playing the scale itself up and down.

Remember you should use this approach with any scale. Use the notes from the scale, but create a phrase or musical statement from it. Your playing will sound so much better.

The blues scale is almost the same as the minor pentatonic scale; there is one added note - the b5/#4. So in the key of A, these would be the notes: A, C, D, D#, E, G.

The tab, notation and pdf files are my own work and represent my interpretation of the songs. These files are put together and formatted in Notepad, transformed to MS Word and converted to pdf format to save or print the composition. And, if available, a link back to the Tutorial. Tab files with references to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material.

The lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers; and the related audio clips are extracted from their tutorial pages. Many tabs have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
