Country Guitar Scale in the Key of A – Part 2

The Country Guitar Scale as I mentioned in my previous Country Guitar Scale article is none other than an F# Minor Blues scale starting on A.  Because there is a relationship between F sharp minor and the key of A major it works beautifully.

Try using a standard chord pattern like A F#m D E7, one bar for each and see how thie scale fits.

I’ve started the scale on A, wheras in my previous article I started on the F sharp.  The descending part has a  variation in it to make it more interesting than the the standard up down scales that make guitar players dizzy and turn them into great scale players but lousy musicians.
