[Harp-L] blues scale

"I have been working on the basic blues scale (2-6 holes). Got it down pretty good (took a while to get the 3 and 4 bends down). Can someone share a scale that is somewhat more advanced, and that includes the upper register?"

Try this: Second Position MAJOR PENTATONIC SCALE through 2 registers (key of G on a C harp):

D2/B3 D3** D3 4D 5B 6B 6D 7D 8D 8B 9B

D1 B9 and D10 are also scale tones for this scale (root, second, third, fifth, sixth, root). Sometimes referred to as the "country" scale but it's also used in some R&B tunes. Useful scale for non- blues material.
