Another blues question (scales you use)

Postby wolfeyes » Sun Feb 25, 2007 2:47 pm

When just playing your basic blues in e ( e shuffle to a shuffle to b and back to e) what scales can you use to derive your fills?

this part always confuses me. i'm assuming the e minor pentatonic, e minor, g major pentatonic, and g major scale? i get really confused in this area. thanks.

For a long time I was staying in E minor pentatonic and hitting the 1, 4 and 5 notes with the chord changes...lately I'm liking the sound of E minor, A major and B major. Sometimes I'll switch between E minor and E major. I'm getting kind of rusty on the theory stuff...I kind of got to a point I don't worry about it and just's like I'm at this chord, and you get used to the notes in the area that work, and you forget what scales they belong to :shock: 8)
