SCALES IN BLUES
In blues music, we use minor scales. However, they’re not regular minor scales, they are five note or pentatonic minor scales. Notice how the second scale is similar to the first, but has fewer notes in it. We can also add what’s called a blue note to the pentatonic minor scale, to get what’s referred to as the blues scale.

Mairead is an excellent piano teacher and I would recommend her to anyone . My son started off as an absolute beginner... at 7 years old and is now, 6 years later, studying for his Grade 3 exam.
