Piano Blues Scales

Let’s learn the blues scales on piano and keyboard in every key.

Firstly, how do you form a blues scale? A blues scale consists of 6 different notes, namely the root, flat 3rd, 4th, flat 5th, 5th and flat 7th of the major scale: 1 – b3 – 4 – b5 – 5 – b7. For instance, in the C blues scale the notes are C – Eb – F – Gb – G – Bb – C. The flat third, flat fifth and flat seventh notes of the scale are the blue notes of the scale.

Also, you can form this scale with the formula, Minor 3rd – Whole Step – 1/2 Step – 1/2 Step – Minor 3rd – Whole Step

Here is the blues scale in every key.
