The next scale I want to talk about is the E Blues scale. Let's take a look at the notes that make up the E Blues scale. They are E, G, A, A sharp, B, D and E. Now I'll show you the proper fingering for the scale.
The right hand is going to hit the first E with the thumb. Play until your fourth finger hits the A sharp, then cross the thumb under and continue up the scale. You will end the scale with your third finger on the E octave. On the way down, bring your fourth finger over when the thumb gets back to the A sharp.
The left hand uses the pinky first and continues finger by finger until the thumb gets to the B. At that time, bring the third finger over and finish the scale with your second finger on the E. Coming down is the same process in reverse.
For the next lesson, you can practice the E Flat Blues Scale .
