From the Secret Guitar Teacher site: Blues scale in 5 positions When I was 15 years old one of my brothers' friends was playing some cool blues riffs on his guitar and I asked him -- how do you do that? He tore an empty cigarette packet down one side, opened it out and, grabbing a ballpoint pen, he Scrawled down five grid patterns with little circles on them and handed it to me. Learn those! Was all he said. At the time I had a feeling like I had just been initiated into the Inner circle of Lead Guitar Players. Now, nearly 40 years on, I know that that feeling was accurate. My lead guitar playing really took off from that point on! Since then I have made it part of my life's mission to pass on that initiation! But you're lucky - Look I've even written out the diagrams neatly for you! Let's go through them one at a time. We're learning a system that will enable us to play in any key, but for the sake of keeping things simple to start with we are going to learn all five positions in the key of E. OK so those are the 5 positions of the Blues scale in E. Learn those really thoroughly and start using them as a warm-up exercise. If you want to really develop fast as a lead guitarist then check out the Secret Guitar Teacher's Gym Pentatonic Scale Drill -- the pentatonic patterns are only one note different so you will soon figure out how to apply the same principle to the blues scale. OK See you in the next lesson
