Blues Scale

The Blues Scale is a music scale with 6 distinct notes to the octave.

Play each scale mode ascending and descending using alternate picking at a speed at which you can do the entire pattern cleanly.

Here are the 6 modes or patterns on Video and Tablature:

Play each note from left to right from the 6th string to the 1st and then back up.

A cool tool you can use to keep your tempo while practicing the different patterns is the Metronome. Experiment at low speeds until you can play the modes cleanly, then increase the speed.
