Blues Guitar - The relation between the "Long A" chord and the blues scale

Next page:
Previous page: Blues Guitar - Blue notes - blues scale Next page: Blues Guitar - Blues scale in E

We have already done what I am going to explain in this lesson. If you go back to the arrangement of Going Down Slow from lesson 16, we had a difficult descending run in bar 7. This is the A minor pentatonic box 5 played from a Long A chord. We will look more into relations between scales and chords later. Now we will only look at the relation between Long A and A minor pentatonic scale and A-blues scale, both in Box 5 position. The change from Long A to A7 is just the beginning of this scale lick. Just keep the partial barré with your first finger, keep the 5th string open (unless you are playing a lick on it), and play some scale licks.

The numbering starts to get confusing, but it is not as difficult as it may look. The black circles with numbers indicates the fingering of the Long A, with indication of which fingers to use. The numbers in red an blue circles indicates the scale degree of the note.
