Uncle Tim's Blues ScalesUncle Tim's Blues Scales For Guitar

Uncle Tim's Blues Scales are another tool to create a unique and different sound.

Harmonic Minor Scales - Key of A MinorThese are actually pentatonic scales with a blues note added. This gives these scales a unique sound that goes well with rock and pop music. The blues sound can be used interchangeably with pentatonic scales.

Blues scales will impart a bluesy feeling over the scale. These are six note scales so they fall between the five note pentatonic scales and the seven note diatonic scales. You will need to use a higher level of skill with these scales than with the pentatonic scales since there is an additional note to manage, but that one notes does cause these scales to be a little bluesy.

Blues scales are an accent scale of lead guitar for western music. They are one of a number of tools that allow you to change your music to make it more expressive in your way.

One Signature To Rule Them All

A minor Blues ScaleThese scales are built on the standard formula for blues scales. Blues scales are spaced a little closer together so you have to work a little harder to get them to sound like a lead statement instead of a scale. But since they have six closely spaced notes they are capable of great expression. But care must be taken to handle them correctly. At first they may sound like scales, but with work and attention to phrasing they can become very expressive melodic statements with a bluesy variety of sound. Six notes allows them to escape much of the choppy sound typical of a pentatonic scale.

And when you take the time to really work with the scales, beautiful melody lines are within the reach of the budding guitarist. So this makes the blues scales an advanced place to try your hand at lead guitar solos.

But comparing the Diatonic and Pentatonic and Blues signatures you can open up an entire new level of theoretical thinking. Being able to look at key wide expression at a glance allows for a deeper understanding with greater uses at your fingertips. Visual pictures like this are easy, fast and complete. You can even reference these graphics in the middle of a song and then get right back to work. This visual framework works!

When you combine Pentatonic Scales with Uncle Tim's Diatonic Triads you create a big palette for song and lead line creation

Remember that in Uncle Tim's Diatonic Triads we are going to take this diatonic twelve fret signature and split in into four three string sets and start pulling out the chord progressions in the diatonic minor key. These are the standard triads used to build songs in western keys.

They set the stage for someone to lay lead lines using diatonic scales over chord progressions created out of diatonic keys. This is one of the most common variants found in musical circles for song creation today. You could call this the standard diatonic palette. Combine diatonic chords with pentatonic, blues and diatonic scales and you have a set of tools for bluesy song creation.

Diatonic Cascades

All of Uncle Tim's eBooks are constructed using the Circle of Fifths

The Circle of Fifths

When you use any of Uncle Tim's eBooks you will always progress through each key by way of the Circle of Fifths. This is how music is created using a key based approach and these chords are created by applying the rules of theory to the key of C major using Uncle Tim's unique visual method.

The Circle of Fifths starts out with the key of C major and proceeds by building each scale. We progress through the same sequence when creating cascades based on the scale. This is a very good way to tie this information into other information about each key that you already know. So you can expand your knowledge and begin to tie everything together.

And these triad cascades offer excellent practice for finger gymnastics. They go nicely with scale practice too.
