GO TO: www.andrewwasson.com Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question… Q: I watched your video on, "Rockin the Open String Blues," and I was wondering if you could expand on that video by demonstrating the open string blues scale patterns for the keys that you had mentioned. Also, Im curious about something else, if my blues progression is say in key of E, can the A blues scale pattern be used around the A chord in that key? Or, do I need to use the E scale pattern all throughout? In other words, can a pentatonic be treated almost like an arpeggio and be used to outline chords? – Narendra, India A: The primary keys for open string blues are; E, D, G, and A. This is because all of these keys contain notes relevant to the guitars open strings. The first half of the lesson discusses open position shapes for these keys. In the second half, Ill discuss the concept of playing over the chord with the matched pentatonic. The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly.
