Blues scale modes?

Post by kentaku_sama on Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:43 am

I have a guitar book and it has a mode 1,2,3,4, and 5 of the Blues scale along with all the other cool scales it has. I've been wondering about this for a while it seems we have Dorian, Aolien, and locrian and such and Phrygian Dominant among others for 7 note scales but hexatonic scales don't have names it seems. I did a little research and found that the name of the "Blues scale" is actually the Minor Hexatonic Scale which has a
double flat seven. but I would love to know how I can get my hands dirty with the other modes of the blues scale, note: If you play any mode of the C blues with a C7 or a C it just sounds like C blues no different but I tried a little with the second mode of the C blues which is (Eb Something hexatonic) And it sound pretty neat but I have no idea what to accompany it with or what chords to solo over and comp in the left hand.

So I'd like to know some cool uses for these modes and what they could be called if they had names, right now I'm just calling the second mode Romanian Hexatonic because It sound romanian like but doesn't have the notes like the romanian minor though. hmm... ANy thoughts? Smile
