How to use Major & Minor for blues

Here is ONE way you can use the Major AND the Minor sound when you play blues lead guitar. Hope you find it useful and fun!

When I say “major”, I am referring to either the major pentatonic OR the major blues scale. When I say “minor”, I’m referring to either the minor pentatonic OR the minor blues scale.
