Ten different scales with appropriate licks
example 6: blues hybriD sCale (r-2-b3-3-4-b5-5-6-b7) By combining the minor and major Blues scales, this nine-note ‘uber’ blues scale is produced. This scale provides us with a run of six chromatic notes from the major GUITAR2nd up to TECHNIQUESthe per fect 5th. The2 4 lick3 exploits this chromatic run by bending up the run of semitone intervals. Chromatic notes sound great and add ex tra colour and sophistication and are great at bending the ear.
Ex 6 - The Blues Hybrid Scale Fingering
A5 example 7: Dorian moDe (r-2-b3-4-5-6-b7) The Dorian (mode 2 of the Major scale) sounds great over minor or dominant 7 chords. Just be careful when using Dorian in a minor blues as it will only work over chord I. The lick showcases the Stevie Ray Vaughan trick of sliding into the root note from a semitone above. The use of the b2nd interval as a passing tone is most effective, and would go on to become an SRV trademark.
