Tony Monaco’s Blues Scale on Organ

June 13, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A classic lesson from 2007, B3 expert Tony Monaco shares his tips on blues scales on the Hammond organ.

The blues scale refers to several different scales with differing numbers of pitches and related characteristics. The hexatonic, or six note, blues scale consists of the minor pentatonic scale plus the ♯4th or ♭5th degree. A major feature of the blues scale is the use of blue notes, however, since blue notes are considered alternative inflections, a blues scale may be considered to not fit the traditional definition of a scale. At its most basic, a single version of this “blues scale” is commonly used over all changes (or chords) in a twelve bar blues progression. Likewise, in contemporary jazz theory, its use is commonly based upon the key rather than the individual chord.
