Blues lead guitar - lesson 2
Blues in the key of A - backing track lesson 2.
This is the second lesson in the Blues soloing series. This lesson focus on the 2nd shape of the scale, played in 7th position (as seen in the diagram below). There are five different main shapes for a certain scale

Instructions: It is recommended that you in the beginning limit yourself to one shape at a time and expand your span over the fingerboard as you progress. After you have gotten use to the first shape (see lesson 1), it's logical to expand your knowledge with this second position of the Blues scale.
The 2nd shape of the Blues scale involves some position shifts that makes it somewhat awkward and may not be your favorite shape for the scale. It includes, however, the main part of the B.B. King Box (3rd string, 9th fret and the dots on the 1st and 2nd strings).
