This major pentatonic scale and the licks you can make with themĀ  are a whole other can of worms.

Although some swing players really get into the major sound of this scale, most jump players stick to using the flat 3 in their licks, tricks, chords and riffs.
And thus we’ll not be diving any further into this scale and concept.

But know it’s out there and if you DO feel the uncontrollabe urge to play this happy scale, you know it’s there.
But then, why play blues at all ?
