Lets talk about scales.

Lets talk about scales.
 Here is a scale builder primer.

We will be building 3 scales in the key  of C.

The Pentatonic scale is built from
1 2 3 5 6
The Blues scales
1 b3 4  b5 5 b7
The Major/Ionian scale
1  2 3 4 5 6 7

Once you get Comfortable with each scale shape you will Be able overlap the three scales and come up with some very Unique licks.

I love adding the blues scales into the major scales. It will give you few passing or Chromatic tones that will help expand your Musical vocabulary

All of these shapes are movable. Just move the root to the key you want it in.

Take it one shape at a time, starting with the pentatonic shape first then the blues shape then the major shape
