Here is the major blues scale for guitar. The images below covers all the major blues scale patterns in all positions on guitar. (guitar major blues scale five positions)

You can easily pass one position to other and practice all the major blues scale guitar positions using this page. The sample scale is given in G and all the red notes refers to root and all the blue notes refer to "blue note" which differs this scale from the major pentatonic scale and makes it blues as we mentioned in guitar major blues scale lesson.

You can practice these blues box patterns just shifting the position (using a different root note). We recommend you to memorize this box patterns in string and position pairs like 3th position-root is on A string, and so on.

Another good thing for you to practice is to open Guitar Intervals page on MyGuitarWorkshop and try to understand the intervals used in major blues scale. It also will improve your ability to find intervals on guitar fretboard.

And again please remember to practice all these blues scale patterns in all keys. Get your guitar, turn on the radio and find the key of a song then try major blues scale, minor blues scale or pentatonic scales over it.

Good luck !!
