6 Note E minor Blues Scale
This diagram shows the six note E minor blues scale. The minor blues scale consists of the Root, flat 3rd, 4th, Flat 5th, 5th, and flat 7th. The notes found in the Em Blues Scale are E - G - B♭- B - D. The scale tone of the Em Pentatonic Blues Scale that adds the mystery and emotion of the Blues is the flatted 5th. The challenge is, of course, to learn how to coax that emotion and mystery from your soul and your guitar. Play tastefully and with discretion, and please don't abuse that 'Blue' note.
