In the previous lesson, I introduced you to the 12-bar blues and I showed you how with the 15-Minute Play-to-Learn Method you can practice very specific techniques to break out of stiff, robotic ukulele playing and play with feeling and style!
We’re going to build on the last lesson, so you’ll want to make sure you’ve watched the previous lesson to get the most out of this lesson.
Today we prepare to solo by learning the blues scale.
You’re going to learn things like:
- How to play the C blues scale in first position
- Which fingers to use to play the scale pattern
- A fun exercise played over the 12-bar blues progression
Be sure to watch this video and practice because in the next video we’ll be taking what you learned and playing your first blues lick!
Students on the early-bird waitlist for the upcoming Blues Tricks course will be the first to know when this video is live.

The best way to start practicing this scale is over the 12-bar blues progression, so I’ve prepared an MP3 backing track of me playing the 12-bar blues for you to practice the scale pattern and exercise I taught you in this video.

“I have improved my playing and really enjoy the lessons. Brett does a great job of teaching. I like being able to revisit lessons. I like how Brett starts slowly then builds up speed. He is very encouraging. You can tell that he loves to play and teach the ukulele.”
