Let’s talk about scales, if you wanna make some jazz instrumentals !

By my experience,

The best scale was the blues scale in case of making a lead !

If we are in the key of C, the blues scale would be:

C-Eb-F-Gb-G-Bb-C.

Mix that up, with any of the progressions that are above and you’ll be satisfied promised. 🙂

So go ahead, play some !
