12 bar Blues in C where next

So we have the 12 bar blues in C sorted and a C major pentatonic  scale improvised over the top.

We can do the same improvisation with the C minor pentatonic and the C Blues scale.

The C minor pentatonic:

Play this

C string –  Open, 3rd fret

E string – 1st fret, 3rd fret

A string – 1st fret, 3rd fret

Pattern is

starting on C string

0-3

E string 1-3

A string 1-3

 

There is one more step to the C Blues scale, add in the E string 2nd fret

The pattern becomes

Starting on C string

0-3

E string 0-2-3

A string 0-3

Try this over a C blues backing track..
