The extended Blues Scale & Harmonic Scale.

By | April 5, 2021

Now it’s time for the expanded blues scale, the one most commonly used in progressive blues …

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------5--7--8--9--10--12--

B|-----------------------------------------------------4--5--7--8----------------------

G|--------------------------------------5--6--7--8--4----------------------------------

D|--------------------------4--5--7--8-------------------------------------------------

A|-----------4--5--6--7--8-------------------------------------------------------------

E|--5--7--8----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want additional possibilities that sound blues, I think that Melodisk molls 3rd mode, the Dominant Lydiska scale, also known as the harmonic scale, works great. Here it is;

E|-----------------------------------------------------10--11--

B|-----------------------------------------10--12--13----------

G|---------------------------------10--12----------------------

D|------------------9--10--12--13------------------------------

A|----------10--12---------------------------------------------

E|--11--13-----------------------------------------------------
