As I often like to say, the pentatonic/blues scale is never wrong, when you solo over a blues…

But you can be right-er, at certain times 😉

In this video, you’ll see how one certain note out of the pattern can emphasize each new chord better than all the rest…

By using that one note as your anchor, and returning to it regularly, you can effectively outline the chord changes, and play through them, without having to change your scales or patterns.

And in case you wonder, the course where I talk about this concept in the most direct way is Killer Blues Solos Made Easy (a fun little mini-course.)

      Brilliant! Now I sound so much better. My notes are no longer random (and bad) sounding.

      You have taught and talked about changing with the chords before….
      For me, naming the notes in the pattern made all the difference! Now I will be able to play the Right-er notes in the 1-4-5 chord change!
