I finally took a closer look at this as I always knew there was more going on than just that straight blues line. Here's what I came up with.


--Am--------------------------(G)--Am---3X

e--------------------------------------
b--------------------------------------
g--------5-5v------------------------
d-7--5-7--7---5h7-5-----------5pu7---
a------------------7po5-3-3-3-------
E--5---5------5----------5---5-3pu5--


--Am--B-------------E-------------Am

e---------------------------
b---------------------------
g-----------7-----7-----------
d-7pu9-9-7-9-9-7h9-------5-5-5-6-7--
a-------------------7---7---7----
E--5pu7-7--7----------------------5--

--Am--------------------------(G)--Am---

e--------------------------------------
b--------------------------------------
g--------5-5v------------------------
d-7--5-7--7---5h7-5-----------5pu7---
a------------------7po5-3-3-3-------
E--5---5------5----------5---5-3pu5--


Scales I play for lead

Am pentatonic (A Blues)
e-----------(5)----
b--------5-8------
g---5-7-8----------
d--7-------------
a---------------
8=added sharp 3rd(?)

I also add F# & B as it suits me


B Blues Pentatonic
e------------(7)---
b--------7-10------
g---7-8-9----------
d--9-------------
a---------------

8=added major(?) 3rd option

E Blues Pentatonic
e---------------
b---------------
g----------7-(9)----
d---5-6-7-9---------
a--7-------------

6=added major(?)3rd option

F Blues Pentatonic
e---------------
b---------------
g-----------8-(10)---
d---6-7-8-10---------
a--8-------------

7=added major(?) 3rd option

I also do a few other things but the above is generally what I work off of.

Please forgive any wrong references. A technical guru I'm not.

I also use some chromatics here. If anyone's interested I'll post that stuff as well.
