Want to know how to make your playing sound a lot more bluesy?⁠

Add the flat 5!⁠

The flat 5 (also known as a sharp 4) is a note in-between the 4th and 5th scale degrees of the minor pentatonic.⁠

Playing the minor pentatonic with the added flat 5 is commonly referred to as the blues scale.⁠

Working this note into your usually minor pentatonic phrases will add a bluesy quality they may not have had before.⁠
