Blues riffs and ‘blue notes’ are often utilized in runs in popular music. This singing lesson practices with two riffs that help you get a feel for combining a major scale pattern with a little bit of blues special sauce.

This singing lesson was requested because of some other blues based lessons I’ve done. In this singing lesson, however, rather than practicing the blues scale or patterns that are entirely made up of the blues scale, I’ve taken a diatonic pattern and combined it with a small amount of blues inflection.

This is a very common technique in modern music and R&B runs to give the vocal line more character. The riffs in this singing lesson are meant to tune your ear to the difference between the major third of the major scale and the minor third that occurs in the blues scale.

Thanks for watching!
