The Blues scale began with the Blues form and is now comfortable in settings such as Modal tunes, Standards, Bossa Novas and Ballads.....
The traditional Blues has three chords/ scales. The blues progressions on this play-a-long are a little more sophisticated because they offer several challenges that are not present in the more traditional version. They are also the ones most often encountered in jazz today.....
Jazz musicians have always enjoyed playing the Blues. The challenge of being able to play blues fluently in all keys is one this play-a-long set hopes to make a reality....'
