Everyone can use a C Blues Scale of a 12 Bar Blues in C. But are there any other blues scales you can use instead of the C Blues Scale? Well, yes of course there is otherwise I wouldn’t have made this lesson. Using non-tonic/root blues scales can give you a bit more of a jazz and complex sound. Some fit rather well, others are rather…well….jazzy…play around with them and see what kind of new sounds you can come up with

Below is a recap of the lesson:

Blues Scale you can use over a 12 Bar Blues in the key of C:
C Blues Scale (I) – C, Eb, F, Gb, G, Bb
