How To Sing A Minor Blues Scale

Hi Jazz Singing Fam! The minor blues scale is a super important scale to add to your bag of scales that you know how to sing.

We all know that cool bluesy sound when we hear it, but can you tell the difference between a major and a minor blues scale? Can you switch between the two? Do you know what notes you are actually hitting?

This scale is used for some fantastic jazzy/bluesy songs like ‘Stormy Monday’ or ‘Stormy Weather’ so its definitely one to learn. Today we’ll break down this scale and I’ll take you through some fun bluesy sing-along exercises to show you how versatile and useful this scale is when it comes to improvising.
